How Much Protein is in a Cricket?

by Vincent Vitale in Education of Crickets

Cricket Nutrition

Eating bugs isn't something that's new. However, not many people know how much protein is in a cricket. Aketta crickets are an excellent source of well-balanced protein and nutrients. And they have a much smaller impact on the environment than traditional livestock. So you can feel good, and do good for the planet at the same time. We covered the protein and health benefits extensively here. 

Crickets provide a complete food protein because they naturally contain the right balance of essential and non-essential amino acids. 30g of roasted Aketta gives you 20g of protein. Compare that to beef, which only gives you 8g of protein. Plus, Aketta crickets give you other important nutrients like fiber, iron and calcium. 

Crickets are a quintessential example of a food consumed by paleolithic humans and is an excellent source of protein and other nutrients considered cornerstones of a paleo diet.

We raise our crickets at our facility in Austin, Texas. They eat USDA certified organic feed and live in a clean, healthy environment. They’re processed in a gluten-free certified organic kitchen, then packaged up and sent to you to enjoy. You can order Aketta edible crickets here.
