Crickets require drastically less water, land, feed and energy than traditional animal protein sources, they are a sustainable superfood!
HOW TO USE? Thanks to its incredible nutritional values (77% protein content) you only need to add a small quantity to your recipes. The ratio varies among recipes, we suggest using up to 20% cricket flour in the mix.

Prodotto molto buono, lo ho usato per fare biscotti e piadine, un gusto che migliora e non peggiora la pietanza. Inoltre il servizio clienti è ottimo, i corrieri hanno avuto problemi nel trovare il mio indirizzo e dopo aver contattato il team di Small Giants è stato risolto il problema in un pomeriggio.
I miei ospiti hanno adorato la focacciandi grilli
Provata la polvere di buffalo worms nella preparazione di vari dolci come biscotti, cookies, pancakes, nella misura del 10-15%. Gusto neutro. Visti i valori nutrizionali mi auguro una maggiore diffusone dei prodotti a base di questi insetti.
