How to Use Cricket Flour in the Kitchen

Did you know that cricket flour can be used in almost any recipe to makes it more nutritious? It has many uses in the kitchen and the best thing about it is that it doesn’t have a big effect on the taste of the finished meal. We believe it will become a common item in every modern household. If you want to start experimenting, here are a few tips.

Cricket flour has no taste

For a lot of people the idea of eating bugs doesn’t feel right, but funnily enough, taste might be one of the biggest advantages of insect flours. For example cricket flour is quite easy to disguise within a recipe. When combined with other real foods you won’t even know it’s there.

Baking with cricket flour

Cricket flour has a fairly high protein content which means you have to add other flours to create a mixture before baking. Good options are flours that contain a lot of starch or fibre. For example tapioca flour, coconut flour, or any other gluten-free flours mixed with cricket flour will work nicely. The ratio varies among recipes, but cricket flour usually won’t make up more than a quarter of the mix.

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.
