Introducing Nutribug’s Cricket Pasta, a high protein pasta made with 100% organic ingredients including crickets – but in the form of flour.
High protein cricket powder is the world’s next big superfood, and this is the world’s first pasta to include it. Cricket pasta is packed full of protein and other essential vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, omega-3 and B12.
This food has all the nutrients any health-conscious person would want, without having to chew an insect. Let’s compare this pasta to some other high protein foods. Cricket Pasta is made with just 10% cricket powder, and delivers 14g of protein per 100g. To put that into perspective, that’s more protein than eggs, which delivers 13g of protein per 100g.
Edible insects should surely be added to the menu for anyone who wants a protein rich diet. Did we mention it’s also gluten free?! However, there’s another good reason why we should be open to including insects in our diet – sustainability. The crickets used in the pasta are farmed in Thailand and compared to other animals bred for meat; they boast high levels of sustainability. For example crickets have a short ‘rearing’ period and require 1,000 times less food and water than cows.
This product is currently in the trials and testing phase and will be launched soon.
