GOURMET BLACK ANTS
With their powerful citrus flavor, it’s easy to understand why Black Ants are a favorite among top chefs. That burst of citrus along with a nice light crunch creates a pleasant surprise. Used as a replacement for lemon or lime, a simple dish becomes a culinary adventure few will ever forget.
Adding to their appeal is the fact that the ants are small enough to not immediately look like a bug. And, to top it off, they’re a glossy black color adding a bit of drama to any dish.
These little nutritional powerhouses are the highest bio-available source of Zinc of any plant or animal. They’re high in antioxidants and are considered anti-inflammatory. They’re a natural source of B vitamins along with vitamins C, D, and E. They offer over twenty minerals beyond zinc including Iron, Manganese, Potassium, Phosphorus, Calcium & Selenium.
So, if you want to make an impression with your next meal, try a sprinkle of Black Ants. Your guests will love it and they’ll talk about it for years to come.
SERVING SIZE: Although it may seem like a gram is not much, it’s more than enough for two or three family meals or for a large tray of snacks. Each ant is packed with flavor and it only takes a few ants to experience a burst of citrus in a single bite.
