Crickets are extremely rich in nutrients
Crickets are a great alternative to meat because they contain 2-3 times more protein than meat. Crickets contain all nine essential amino acids and cricket protein is also very easily absorbed by the human body.

Insects are the future food
The world's population is growing rapidly. It is estimated that 70 million people will be added each year, and the world's population is projected to exceed 9 billion by 2050, which requires to double the meat production.
To feed all the additional hungry mouths in the same way as now there are not enough resources on earth
(including land and water). As breeding the insects for food is very resource efficient, then large part of the animal protein will certainly come from insects in the future
Insects have been a food for humans since prehistoric times
Eating insects seems new to Europeans, but in reality eating insects (including crickets) is not outrageous. In ancient times, insects were eaten, as evidenced, for example, by a 15,000-year-old painting of a grasshopper on the cave wall of ancient Europeans.
Even today, insects are part of the daily diet of 2 billion people every day.
There are almost 2,000 edible insect species.
