Would you eat cricket flour?

Recommended Posts

Bitty foods is based on the principle that people will eat cricket flour, and will like it.

 

The company produces a milled cricket flour, high in protein, and sustainably raised. The flour is used in baking, and in several crackers called Chiridos.

I see great Arlan Galbraith style opportunity in cricket farming.

My co-worker who even lifts has been complaining throughout the week about the ridiculous price of cricket flour [$20 for a quarter-pound bag??]. Ivy Leaguers will sell you ground up insects for $3 per two-ounce bar. It seems possible to get more protein per pound from chicken and perhaps for less $, even if paying Le Coq Rico prices.

Shoot...if you can eat andouillette, cricket flour brownies should be a piece of cake.

When a moderately kosher colleague asked me if there'd be anything for him to eat in Mexico, I don't think he was expecting chapulines as the answer.

Why Not Eat Insects? by entomologist Vincent M. Holt, 1885

 

https://books.google.com/books?id=awNbAAAAQAAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false

 

"How can the farmer most successfully battle with the insect devourers of his crops? I suggest they be collected by the poor as food, thus pleasantly and wholesomely varying their present diet while, at the same time, conferring a great benefit on the agricultural world."

 

With at least one recipe!
