Yes. You can eat these scorpions. Don’t worry about the poison. After they die, the poison becomes inert and is harmless. Although, many chef’s do remove the stinger because it is sharp. Others, just eat it it.
Scorpion Brittle is a toffee flavored, brittle-style candy with insects trapped inside, giving it the look of fossilized amber. Along with a cricket, a larva and a fern, the package features “The Story Of Amber”, adding education as you discover the past.
Cricket protein is similar to beef and salmon when it comes to quality protein. It has all of the essential amino acids and is packed with B vitamins with a perfect balance of an Omega 6:3 ratio of 3:1. In addition, crickets have more calcium than milk and more iron than spinach. The cricket’s chitin (exoskeleton) is a prebiotic just to top it off. ×
Crickets can be grown using less than 1% of the water needed for an equivalent amount of beef. Insects produce virtually no greenhouse gas when compared to beef and can be grown on bio-waste reducing the need to use land to grow their feed. Bugs are an environmentally friendly food source. ×
Insects need substantially less land than other livestock and can be grown vertically in an urban environment. They are grown humanely and can be grown just about anyplace in the world by households, small farmers and large commercial interests. Insects for food is trend whose time has come... again. ×
Current meat production is unsustainable and the more insects people eat, the less meat they will consume. If we make edible insects a trend in North America and Europe, the rest of the world will follow. ×
