Innovations and advantages
The company has identified a gap in the market in the production of a cricket energy bars as there are currently no competitors in the UK market. Crickets are not only high in protein, they contain high levels of iron and all essential amino acids. Crickets could be the answer to the ever- increasing and enormous protein demands of the future, as they emit 80 x less Co2 than cattle, require 12 x less water and significantly less land. Crickets are higher in protein compared to beef (68- 78 g per 100 gram) – Contain all 9 essential amino acids – 3 x more iron, 5 x more magnesium and 2 x more zinc than beef – High levels of Vitamin B12, which is not obtainable from plants Part of the reason for the higher micronutrient content of insects compared to meat, is that they are eaten whole, including muscle tissues. The production of the energy bars has a strict quality control and hygiene requirements of each stage of production. Bars are packed in a modified environment which is favorable for their storing food qualities.
