Can Other Protein Sources Match Insects?

The way we produce protein today is not sustainable and unethical. A change is inevitable. The question is, which protein source is going to become the new norm? Let’s look at meat and plant protein and compare them to insect protein in terms of sustainability, morality, and quality.

Meat protein

The most popular protein source in the western world is probably meat. In terms of protein quality it’s great, it can be called a complete protein - easily digestible with an ideal amino acid ratio. The problem is that factory farming of big animals like cattle or poultry is unethical and bad for the environment.

Plant protein

Farming plants for protein doesn’t harm animals, but it does cause animals to die because of loss of natural habitat, chemical fertilizers, and heavy machinery. It is good for the environment because plants require substantially less resources than big animals and produce near zero greenhouse gasses, even though it creates a lot of waste – parts of plants we can’t digest. Nutritional protein quality is where plants lag behind meat, they are harder to digest and have a sub-optimal amino acid ratio, they carry incomplete proteins.

Insect protein

Insects provide us with complete protein that’s similar quality to meat. They are also environmentally friendly, they require less resources than plants and they are even able to convert organic food waste into protein. We also consider their farming to be ethical because top scientists studying insects say insects do not feel pain and aren’t capable of experiencing suffering. Plus farmers use precautions to avoid even the theoretical harm.

If we consider all three main aspects: nutritional quality, sustainability, and ethics it’s clear that insects are our best option so far. The only thing we need to do is give them a try and see that they can be a tasty part of our diet too!

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.


Product hasn't arrived yet but hopefully soon.


Excellent flavor and consistency

Chose this for it's sustainable source, because cricket farming is the way of the future. Very happy about taste and consistency.

Schon das 3. mal gekauft

Mein Lieblingsproteinpulver!
Schmeckt sehr schokoladig und süß. Perfekt für nach dem Training 🏋️‍♀️
Ich benutze es auch für Proteincookies und Muffins.

My new favorite

Super delicious, great texture and compatible for the stomach.

Echt empfehlenswert, löst sich super auf, hat einen guten Geschmack, und ist sehr verträglich (in der Regel kriege ich Magenbeschwerden bei den Molke Erzeugnissen, deswegen wollte ich nach Alternativen schauen, bei dem Proteinpulver habe ich jedoch keine pobleme)
