'Crickstart' is a Montreal-based company that is setting itself apart in the snack bar, cracker and smoothie mix categories by making products with insects sourced from an organic cricket farm in Ontario, Canada.

While insects are commonly eaten in many parts of the world, North American consumers have been hesitant to incorporate the sustainable protein source into their diets. However, Crickstart offers tempting product flavors like Cinnamon Cardamom, Lemon Lime and Chili Chocolate, which can easily be enjoyed as pre- or post-workout foods.

Crickstart's non-dairy, gluten-free organic cricket protein powder Smoothie Mix is offered in a Mango Banana Raspberry flavor that can be blended into drinks or used to top yogurt for a boost of essential vitamins, protein and iron, among other benefits for one's health and well-being.
