IS EATING CRICKETS HEALTHY? Crickets are one of the most popular insects consumed among the thousands of varieties used for food sources worldwide. Using crickets as a food source is a practice that dates back thousands of years. Eating crickets for protein is most common in under-resourced countries, where animal sources of protein are limited. However, farming insects for human consumption is gaining traction in North America and Europe. As one of the primary benefits of cricket protein, it is an excellent alternative source of protein and other nutrients. In addition, among foods that are good for gut health, cricket powder is a prebiotic rich food associated with minimizing systemic inflammation.

Insects are a source of high-quality protein and can be cultivated easily. That’s why WUR researcher Teun Veldkamp explores the possibilities of using insects in food for humans and animals. “Insects can be cultivated on waste streams from the food processing industry, which makes them much more sustainable than fishmeal and soya.”

"Not only are they healthy for you, but they also require a lot fewer resources to farm than a comparable amount of protein from conventional sources of meat like beef, pork or poultry."
