How to Make Cricket Flour using Cricket Powder
Cricket powder vs. cricket flour. We’ve all heard about cricket flour, but many people do not know how to use it. Essentially, they don’t know the difference between cricket flour and powder.
Cricket powder is super healthy. It has more protein than most meats, all of the essential amino acids, more iron than spinach and more calcium than milk, it has B12 and Omega 3 along with chitin, which is a pre-biotic – that’s food for probiotics.
So, here’s the thing. Cricket Flour is regular flour cut with cricket powder at a 4:1 ratio. That’s one part powder and three parts regular baking flour. Or, 25% powder and 75% baking flour.
Cricket Powder alone will not work for most baked goods. But added to baking flour, it will work just like regular flour but it’ll pack a protein punch.
