There are plenty of gourmet salt products that are infused with unconventional ingredients, including everything from seaweed to dried meat, but Cricket Flours is introducing something new with its Cricket Salt.

As its name suggests, Cricket Flours specializes in creating a variety of products with crickets, which contain all of the essential amino acids, omegas, B12 and iron. Crickets are also a complete source of protein, as they are between 60-70% protein by weight. They also provide a much more sustainable alternative to other animal sources of protein, as chickens and cows consume huge quantities of valuable resources like water and feed in comparison to crickets.

The gourmet salt blend combines Himalayan pink salt with roasted crickets and is being introduced as part of a project on Kickstarter. Previously, Cricket Flours successfully crowdfunded its Cricket Brownie Mix.
