Insects, the best thing that happened to veganism?

Insects, the best thing that happened to veganism?

Vegans don’t eat animals; insects are animals; vegans, therefore, don’t eat insects. Simple, right? But wait. Did you know that insects don’t feel pain and cannot suffer? Did you know that insects provide all the nutrients that are hard to get on a vegan diet? Did you know that insects require less feed, less land, and less water than any other animal by far? Did you know that substituting some plants for insects can actually reduce animal suffering? No? Then it’s time you took a closer look, because insects are the best thing that happened to veganism.

Even in a well-formulated real foods vegan diet, nutrient deficiencies are unavoidable

Several studies have shown that vegans are prone to deficiencies in B12, calcium, iron, zinc and long-chain fatty acids EPA & DHA. Vegan diets are also lacking in well-absorbable complete proteins. Insects, especially crickets, are a great source of all of these nutrients and provide a highly absorbable complete protein.

Killing insects is morally ok

Insects don’t feel pain and therefore cannot suffer. When there is no suffering there is no harm to be done. Insects thrive in densely packed conditions, ideal for farming. They have a natural ability to slow down their metabolism and go into hibernation when their environment becomes inhospitable; reducing temperature and freezing them is a humane and painless method of killing.

Eating insects means harming fewer animals

Sentient animals are killed as a side effect of growing and harvesting plants. We now have a choice between killing animals that do not suffer (insects) and those that very clearly do (rodents, birds, etc.) when plants are grown. Vegans that want to reduce the suffering of animals should replace a significant part of their calories from plants by calories from insects.

Insects are the kings of sustainability

To produce the same amount of protein as other commonly farmed animals, they require significantly less feed, land, and water, not to mention they can be fed with plant-based food production byproducts that would normally be wasted. Their farming also creates less waste, pollution, and greenhouse gasses.

To sum it all up

Insects are a solution for all the nutritional issues vegan diets suffer from, a very sustainable option, and a great weapon in the fight against animal cruelty. So, isn't it the right time to include insects in your daily diet?

great bars! ill most likely switch to them

when i look for bars i look for the following checklist by priority :
1) nutrition 20gr protein <300kkcal and not too much fat/sugar (check)
2) made out of natural healthy products, no plam oils, aspartham, etc (this is usually very hard to confirm usually but i think its a check here)
3) taste (check!) - those are not too sweet, a little bit dry but quite light and don't leave a "chemical" sweetened aftertaste like some "famous" bars
4) good for the environment - thats a great bonus to have (check!)

so four checks :) i will probably swap to those going forward!

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.
