How About Some Cricket Flour?

Cricket flour or cricket powder, according to the company Crunchy Critters, contains no artificial coloring, no MSG, is high in protein, loaded with nutrients, and it is low in saturated fat. Cricket flour is dairy-free. It is soy-free too. Cricket flour sold by Crunchy Critters is made with organically-fed crickets. Crunchy Critters states that its cricket flour is not like the flour most of us are used to. If a person is planning to make some tasty baked goods with cricket flour, the company suggests mixing its cricket flour with wheat, coconut, or nut flours to ensure good-tasting baked goods. It is advised that just a bit of cricket flour should be mixed with other flours because too much cricket flour in the mix may alter the texture of baked goods and cause the baked goods to have a far too nutty flavor. . On the Crunchy Critters' website, recipes that use cricket flour are available. A customer can also buy edible insects on the Crunchy Critters' website. Just in case a customer is unsure as to the value of eating insects, Crunchy Critters details the benefits of eating insects on its website. There are many additional benefits to cricket flour, but I will pass on using it. .

I would not eat it, but I do know in some countries, they eat crickets, so I am sure many do like it.

I think due to it being high in protein and nutrients, crickets make for a good food sources for many.

It's quite expensive, but worth a try, I guess. I wonder if hunting the ants in my garden can make it to one of their recipes.

Well, perhaps you could dry out the ants, grind them up, and use ant flour. High in protein, for sure.

@MALUSE I will gather together a staff and see if that blender I have can produce a mass of ant flour. I believe I will need to buy more blenders.

No, thank you. Only if I am doing a survival drill I will attempt to eat that, but I would still prefer they not tell me what I am eating. I feel my prejudice to eating foods my mother taught me to eat is strong. I know some tribes in dessert areas eat cricket and locus, but I would prefer not to do so. Maybe in my next lifetime, when we have sufficiently use up all the world resources?

Yes, if all we have left are insects to eat, then eat them we must to survive. Let's wait for our next lifetime.

@Corbin5 Dried bugs still sound better than fresh wet ones. The flour also looks nice, all you need is to NOT KNOW it comes from crickets.

Oh wow that sounds yummy especially for those people that have the intolerance of either the gemmule of wheat OR the kernel of corn . . .

Insects really are nutritious and a sustainable food source. And, as you mentioned, definitely safe for those who have intolerance to certain ingredients. Now, getting folks to eat insects in some way, shape, or form will be a mighty task.

@Corbin5 yes but that task will surely be sensational once achieved and finding ways to cajole the ego to let go of fear, even more of an exciting challenge.

Maybe you could use the flour to make little dough balls for fish bait. My grandfather made little dough balls out of bread and that bait worked for fishing.

Most of the time I am of the mind that you can't knock something until you try it. This does not fall under that category.

@porwest I have excluded bugs from my diet due to those little fellows being little living creatures too. I do suppose most vegetarians do not consider bugs animals, but I have met some very nice bugs in my life, so I will let them live on for as long as they can.

I think I would give it a try, as long as it tastes good I see no reason not to eat it. I read somewhere they think we will be eating lots of insects soon as an easy way to provide food for a growing population.

I also read that wonderful Jello, cheesecakes, gummy worms, marshmallows, Pop-Tarts, Mini Wheats, frosted cereals, Peeps, Trident gum, M & M's, Junior Mints, Snickers candy bars and more contain gelatin, made by prolonged boiling of skin, cartilage, and bones from animals, or in other words, the leftover stuff like pork skins, horns, and cattle bones. I avoid gelatin in foods.
