Insect-based savoury snacks
New UK-based food company Crické has launched a line of insect-based savoury snacks.
Crické’s Cricket Crakers are being sold in three new flavours: nigella and onion; sunflower and chia; and ginger and chilli. The Cricket Tortilla Chips line has expanded to include chilli, and sea salt.
The company says its products – which are made from cricket powder – are both healthy and high in sustainable protein. Each offering contains between 80-200% more protein than comparable products.
“Insect consumption is a hot topic in sustainability talk right now. It is one potential answer to reducing our carbon footprint while still maintaining a diet high in protein and other fundamental nutrients,” according to the company.
