Crickets infuse all the properties of food perfect for sports nutrition, super athletes, and everyday fitness fans. With a high concentration of protein, a plentiful number of vitamins & minerals, and all nine essential amino acids to keep your body in top shape, cricket power will help you reach peak fitness.
Alongside of multitude health benefits of this superfood, at EntoGourmet, we wanted to find a solution to meet our ever-growing need for a food source fit for the 21st century.
The high level of chitin in crickets has potential anti-inflammatory properties that can lead to an increase in the levels of metabolic enzymes beneficial for gut health.
Crickets require a tiny fraction of the land, and water that beef, pork, chicken, and soy requires while producing little to no greenhouse gasses.
This is what we mean when we call crickets a sustainable and ecological protein source, necessary for posterity’s sake.
We go above and beyond merely making a sustainable and ecological product, we adhere to our standards for sustainability in the broader sense of the word. We use high-quality ecologic feed for our crickets, and this carries through in the taste of our product.
We invest in and contribute to the local economy of Lorca in southeastern Spain by creating both skilled and unskilled employment opportunities.
Why is it essential to buy crickets raised in southeastern Spain?
We are helping to lead the insect for human consumption movement across Europe. In combination with the latest production methods, we are also a socially responsible firm helping to create a new industry in the EU through fundamentally changing how we think about food, and what we choose to eat. Any new industry comes with its opportunities and challenges. That is why Entogourmet wishes to set the industry-wide standard for transparency in its production process, and clear traceability for health-conscious consumers.
We adhere to all European Union farm animal production guidelines and regulations. As part of the International Platform of Insects for Food and Feed (IPIFF), we are in line with the industry best practices. We partner with research organisations, government agencies, and leaders in the field of ‘insects for human consumption’.
Local production is a critical factor in sustainability and food security. We aim to shape the European Union as the world leader for the production of crickets in terms of quality assurance, and health standards as set by regulation.
