How is eating bugs good for you?
We have taken the time to break down what exactly it is you’re eating when you buy Aketta Crickets. That’s because when you eat Aketta, we guarantee you are getting a sustainable protein source that outranks the nutrition of current protein sources! Let’s compare crickets vs. chicken.
First, it’s important to remember that crickets’ biomass become exactly what they eat. Feed conversion ratio (FCR) is a measure of how efficient an animal is at converting feed into increases of desired output. With lower numbers meaning greater efficiency in converting feed to product, crickets are 2.08x more efficient in feed conversion than chicken. What’s more is at Aketta, we raise our crickets on a diet of USDA certified organic feed, and they are tested as gluten-free, dairy- and soy-free, and Non-GMO Certified. You know exactly what you’re getting!
Next, let’s dive into the rich nutritional value of crickets. Crickets outrank chicken in protein content; macromineral, trace mineral, and vitamin concentration; and unlike chicken, contain folic acid, a vitamin found in leafy greens vegetables!
Finally, the taste! There are plenty of options on how to consume crickets. Our goal is not to convert you to a diet of solely crickets, but rather to show you that replacing some of your snacks with whole-roasted seasoned crickets or adding cricket flour to your baked goods will benefit you and the earth.
