From Silkworm Powder Snacks to Dark Chocolate Chickpea Spreads

 - Nov 13, 2018
These alternative protein products range from silkworm powder snacks to dark chocolate-flavored chickpea spreads. While Bella Pupa's wholesome snack range consists of 20% silkworm powder -- sourced from insects and recognized as an alternative source of vitamins, proteins, minerals and fiber -- Boar's Head dark chocolate hummus is a low calorie alternative to traditional dessert spreads.

Other notable alternative protein products include Nibble's high protein lemon and coconut bites which are also non-GMO, gluten and dairy-free. Additionally, Moon Juice's mushroom-based Adaptogenic Protein is another standout. The powder is ideal for mixing with coffee, smoothies and more and boasts 20 grams of protein with Cordyceps, Reishi and Ashwagandha as its key ingredients.

Chickpea-based cakes and algea-infused mock salmon burgers round off this list and speak to consumers' growing desire for plant-based protein options that suit niche dietary restrictions.
