Food

Dried crickets are a healthy and tasty food  to be tasted as it is. They are rich in protein (about 3 times the content of meat), calcium, iron and vitamin B12 (a vitamin deficient in the vegetarian and vegan diet), compared to a limited amount of fat and calories. Nutrinsect, in collaboration with other international partners, has submitted to the European Commission the request for authorization of dried crickets as for food purposes.

 

We are waiting for the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) to recognize our crickets as "Novel Food", and we hope to have the authorization for their release on the market at the end of 2022.
