Crickets are a real source of protein and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Crickets because of their extremely high nutrient content are identified as alternative foods of the future throughout Europe. In addition, Cricket Farms are extremely environmentally friendly as they require much less resources than e.g. hens, pigs or cattle, both in terms of space and in terms of raw materials consumed.
