Our search for the perfect high-protein, nutrient dense flour is now over! We are thrilled to announce that effective immediately we are switching our base flour to an all natural gluten-free cricket flour.
Thailand Unique, the vendor of cricket flour (and other edible insects and bug-related products) raises crickets on commercial farms and feeds them a healthy diet of mixed grains and vegetables and raised in clean hygienic conditions. The crickets are processed at an FDA approved factory and the resulting flour is 100% natural, with no preservatives, artificial colors or added flavors. In addition to being a good source of protein, the flour provides a good source of iron and B12!
We plan to use the cricket flour in all of our breads, muffins, cookies, and even cheesecakes! We can't wait for you to try our new and improved gluten-free cricket products!
New to cooking and baking with cricket flour? Here are some resources and recipes that will get you hopping around your kitchen in no time!
