Two Dried Forest Scorpions

Heterometrus, the Asian Forest Scorpion

Is The Scorpion Edible? Yes, scorpions are edible and many people around the world eat them regularly.

Land shrimp with a stinger? Maybe not, but these scorpions are sure to be a hit.

Edible scorpions make great toppings for everything from salads to the main dish. They’re crunchy and tasty.

What about their poisonous tail? Well, first of all, they’re dried and that makes the poison harmless. But, even if they weren’t dried but instead fresh, cooking also makes it inert.

Each scorpion is from 2.5″ to 4″ in length. Some have straight tails and some have curved tails.

Please Note: These are food grade scorpions and we take care to preserve them but, in shipping, legs and tails may break. They are strong and easy to place on food so the scorpion looks whole. In most cases, they arrive in tact, but please be aware that breakage may occur.

    Two scorpions – both arrived broken in places. Still cool but disappointing.

  • Are Scorpions Edible?

    We're not sure if you can eat any old scorpion but we do know that you can eat Manchurian Scorpions and Asian Forest Scorpions. You can eat them whole, stinger and all. 

    Although little known here in the United States, ancient Chinese medicine considers scorpion powder to have many benefits and to be good for many diverse ailments. In China, there are a number of patented medicines using scorpion powder/extract. We, however, make no such claims.

  • Can you eat the scorpion stinger?

    It's up to you. Many people do eat the stinger but bit is also common practice for chef's to chop the stinger tip off.

  • What About the Scorpion Poison When You Eat One?

    Soon after the scorpion dies the scorpion poison becomes inert. It's safe to eat frozen, dried, fried or baked scorpions. The only ones you need to worry about are living or freshly killed.

Edible Insect Allergies

ALLERGY INFORMATION

If you are allergic to shellfish or crustaceans, you may also be allergic to insects.

Please Also Note: Products may be from manufacturing facilities that process milk, eggs and peanuts.

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. ×
