Big News From the World of Insect Eating, November

What happened in the world of insect eating in November? Edible insects are among top 5 food trends of 2017, world’s first insect bread is available at grocery stores in Finland, you can now order insect dishes on Deliveroo, and much more.

Edible insects are among top 5 food trends of 2017 by Forbes

A panel of culinary experts selected a top 10 list of food and restaurant trends based on ideas from restaurants all over the U.S. Edible insects finished 5th and Mike Thelin, one of the judges had this to say: "While it may be the novelty that piques the interest, this is no gimmick. As it turns out, bugs are delicious!"

World’s first insect bread available at grocery stores in Finland

Finnish bakery and food service company Fazer launched the world’s first insect-based bread to be offered to consumers in stores. The bread, made from flour ground from dried crickets as well as wheat flour and seeds, contains more protein than normal wheat bread. Each loaf contains about 70 crickets and costs 3.99 euros, compared with 2 to 3 euros for a regular wheat loaf.

Start-up gets $360,000 to farm grasshoppers for the Western world

Dror Tamir, co-founder of Hargol FoodTech, the world’s first commercial grasshopper farmer, convinced the judges and the audience at the Tel Aviv Creator Awards that this seemingly disgusting insect is the protein source of the future. Convincing the Western world to digest grasshoppers is no small feat, and for this, Hargol FoodTech received $360,000.

You can now order insect dishes on Deliveroo

Anyone using the Deliveroo app around Shoredtich, London can order spicy cricket rice cakes, salted cricket and smoked tomato salad, or buffalo worms wrapped in a betel leaf, with each dish featuring on a new menu created by the take-away service in collaboration with Eat Grub, a company that sources and sells edible insects. If successful, the pop-up could be rolled out on the app nationwide.

Exo and Tiny Farms join forces to make crickets the next great protein

Two well established edible insect companies—Exo, the cricket bar producer, and Tiny Farms, the cricket flour supplier —joined forces to help make crickets the next great protein. Their biggest obstacle is the fact that Western countries are still finding the concept a little yucky.

Suprised by taste

I have bought a starter pack and haven't tested all the products yet.
But protein bar and "milk" shake are excellent. And my friends are also interested in and so it's handy to have discount coupons for them.

Perfect ingredients, natural taste

I love the ingredients of this bar, nothing artificial, nothing that makes me bloated. I like that it is not too sweet, but has a natural, earthy flavour. Makes me full for hours.

Great powedered protein!

This very comparable to the mainstream whey powders from a nutritional content perspective - at 20/25 protein per scoop and ~120/30 kkcal. The taste is super nice! Blended in ~250/300 ml of water its surprisingly thick and smooth, which i like very much. The only minus I can think of is that it takes a bit more "shaking" to blend fully and ensure there are no hard pieces - not a big deal.

Delicious Proteins

I had the starter pack. I have to say, I really enjoyed it.
But lets go through it piece by piece.
Crackers: The crackers of all flavours were very good and crunchy. Only I found them a little bit too salty.
Protein bars (pleasure cricket): They were just perfect, I loved them.
Protein bars (serious): They were very good as well, but could be a little bit sweeter (but than they might not be serious anymore^^)
The protein powder tasted very good. I think it was sweeter than my usually used one(Huel), and did't feel to feed me as good, but still very nice.
The pasta were quite similar to other lentilles pasta, not very special.
I haven't tried the baking powder so far, but looking forward to use it for pancakes or so.

Hi,

Product hasn't arrived yet but hopefully soon.

Thanks
