1. Sustainability: less water, food, land is needed to produce a pound of insect protein than is needed for conventional livestock. This is especially true when insects are fed food waste we do not ordinarily eat, like spent grains from a distillery.
  2. Environment: insects produce far less methane than conventional livestock.
  3. Nutrition: crickets are full of protein, heart-healthy Omega-3 fats and they are low in cholesterol.
  4. Taste: bugs can be tasty and easily absorb flavours. Our favourite so far? The honey bug otherwise known as the wax worm.
  5. Ethics: bugs can euthanized ethically by freezing them into a deep sleep before cooking.
