Edible insect brand Jimini’s is launching Fusilli pasta enriched with insect powder in France.
Announcing the innovation, the company noted that 79% of French people eat pasta at least once a week.
The company touted the pasta as both ‘delicious’ and offering ‘environmental and nutritional benefits’. The products are made from 95% organic ingredients, including wheat and egg whites. The pasta is ‘naturally rich in protein and fibre’ thanks to the addition of buffalo worm powder, Jimini’s revealed.
Jimini’s has been offering ‘gourmet products’ made from whole or powdered insects since 2012.
