The Bella Pupa snacks are a new product from Bugsolutely in China that will provide consumers with a satisfying and sustainable way to snack.

Silkworms are often used in China to farm silk and used in animal feed after they have reeled silk, but this new snack looks to repurpose the edible insects that are produced in hundreds of thousands of tonnes each year. The snack is made with 20% silkworm powder and maintains a profile that is a good source of vitamins, protein, minerals and fiber for consumers to appreciate.

The Bella Pupa snacks will be available in China for sale both online and offline starting on October 15 and are sure to garner a lot of attention given their different ingredient profile.
