A UN FAO report published in 2013 urged the world to adopt the practice of eating insects as a sustainable food source. By 2050, there will be 10 billion people on Earth and, to feed them all, we will require 70% more food, 120% more water and 42% more arable land. Moreover, the impact of growing livestock on the environment will need to halve compared to what they are today to meet the acceptable targets.
Consequently, it is imperative that we shift to alternative protein sources, such as edible insects. Crickets contain tremendous amount of protein as well as all essential amino acids, Vitamins B2 and B12.
Crickets are especially beneficial to women's health due to its concentration in Iron. Also rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6, which could reduce our reliance on often unsustainable fish oils.
Insects are exponentially more efficient and sustainable source of food compared to livestock. Crickets can make a difference in saving the earth and help lessen the food crisis we face in the future. Nutritious, environmental friendly, and most importantly, delicious!
