A Paris-based company recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for a line of energy bars made from cricket flour. Although nearly one third of the world's population consumes insects, eating crickets is still considered unusual in North America and Europe. This company aims to bring the natural and sustainable source of protein to Western consumers with its delicious handmade energy bars.
'JIMINI’S' is a line of natural energy bars made from cricket flour and other organic ingredients. Unlike other ingredients, cricket flour serves as a natural and eco-friendly source of protein. In fact, each bar contains as much as 15 grams of protein per serving. The taste of the flour is then masked by dried fruits, nuts and seeds, which give the energy bars an additional nutritional boost.
The handmade energy bars are perfect for eco-consious foodies who are looking for a way to eat healthy and reduce their environmental footprint at the same time.
