/’sooper, food/, noun
~a nutrient rich food considered to be especially benificial for health and well-being.
Let’s talk nutrition profile for a sec. Our dry roasted
crickets and cricket powder is 64% protein containing all 9
essential amino acids. One serving of our crickets contains more than 500% of the RDA for Vitamin B-12. Also our crickets contain the pre-biotic Chitin, which is an excellent nutrient for the beneficial bacteria (probiotics) in your gut. Plus crickets contain Omega Fats, Iron, Calcium and Potassium. So, yeah, Crickets are a Superfood.
Now, more than ever, it’s important to look at the impact and efficiency of our industries that depend on natural resources. When we look at the environmental cost of producing 1 pound of traditional livestock protein it becomes clear that crickets are the “micro-livestock” of a more sustainable future. Let’s look at resource input versus energy output and make informed decisions about what we eat.
Evolution Ranch CrickEATS! are our line of organically flavored, whole, dry roasted crickets. They are an awesome, delicious, nutritious supersnack!
CrickEATS! are great to munch on right outta the bag but also great on salads like crutons or throw a handful on your favorite soup. If you’re the outdoorsy type mix a bag in with your favorite trail mix for a nutrition boost on your next hike.
I’m always hearing of new ways people enjoy eating our CrickEATS! and there is surely a flavor you will love.
Evolution Ranch Cricket Powder is an amazingly versatile ingredient, not just for smoothies (which it’s great in by the way). You can add cricket powder to all kinds of foods you already eat: Dips like hummus or guacamole. Baked goods like breads, cookies, muffins or brownies or how about some cricket powered pancakes for the fam this weekend?
However you choose to incorporate the “Gateway Bug” into your diet, you can always feel good about eating a highly nutritious, highly sustainable, cricket powered superfood!
We are really only limited by our imaginations when it comes to cooking with crickets. Below is a short video of a simple guacamole recipe with 20 grams of cricket protein.
