Why should you buy insects to eat?
We believe that they are not just the future, but are for now! In order to keep providing you with the possibility to buy insects to eat, insects have to be farmed. Insects that are farmed require far less space compared to livestock and are much more efficient in terms of feed and water consumption. They can also provide a source of food for both humans and animals that is extremely high in protein. Possibly the best food ever! So why should you buy insects to eat?
We now use a third of the Earth’s agricultural land to grow for animals and as our population grows, the size of the Earth will remain the same. We will not be able to support animal production as a food source in the near future, so we must look for viable alternatives . Products based on micro-algae, 3D printing and synthetic lab grown meat are all rapidly developing, but we want to help you buy insects to eat!
Farming insects to eat
Obviously when farming insects, just like anything else there are strict quality and hygiene control procedures in place. In spite of the fact that this is not the case, As of January 2018 new legislation will be in place, which we hope will encourage even more people to buy insects to eat.
Insects can also be used for more than just eating as a snack, they go perfectly with your happy hour drinks too. You do not have to just buy insects to eat in their whole form as they can finely milled and turned into a flour. We produce high protein pasta using buffalo worm flour to help you get a protein fix. Our high energy and protein bars use cricket to help recharge your batteries, pre or post workout.
Textured protein is the next development in the way we will be able to buy insects to eat. Just like a vegetarian sausage or steak made of soy or cereals, these will have the satisfying texture of eating meat, but with all the benefits of insect nutrients. What will you do for the next few years?
