How to Make Cricket Flour using Cricket Powder
Cricket powder vs. cricket flour. This product is 100% pure cricket powder.
Cricket powder is super healthy. It has more bio-available protein than most meats, all the essential amino acids plus an additional nine, more iron than spinach, and more calcium than milk. It has B12 and Omega 3 along with chitin, which is a pre-biotic fiber – that’s food for probiotics.
Cricket powder is also high in antioxidants which help you in the fight against free radicals in your body!
Cricket Flour is regular flour cut with cricket powder at a 4:1 ratio.
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.
Keep in mind, if you add too much cricket powder to your baking powder, your baked goods will end up with a hard or tough texture.
