THE HIGH COST OF EDIBLE INSECTS

Expensive Edible InsectsWe get a lot of comments about the price of edible insects.

It’s true, edible insects are expensive right now. But, that will change due to the law of supply and demand. Supply is low and demand is growing. Market forces will bring the price down as suppliers gear up for higher demand.

So, prices are high. You’re paying for a new experience and supporting a new industry. As a first adopter and market influencer, your experience is important and your story can help the industry grow.

Edible insects have so much going for them. Yet, unwarranted cultural fears keep many people from the experience.

Experience edible insects and tell your story.

Again, as demand grows, prices will drop. Pretty soon you’ll be buying a big bag of Chapulines from your local grocery store while mentioning that you remember when no one ate bugs.

With all these different flavors of bugs available, it’s going to be interesting to see which ones become commercially viable. Will it be your favorite? Or, something you haven’t even tried yet?

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. ×
