In the culinary world, there is a fairly new and exciting flour that has taken off in a huge way. Guys, we’re talking about cricket flour. The innovative idea came about by Charles Wilson who was in search of an alternate source of protein.

Based on reports, these crickets are sourced in North America and are specifically raised for human consumption. It’s processed by the milling of whole crickets into powder. For those who have consumed, they expressed that it has no ‘buggy’ taste. Instead, it has a nutty flavor, even more than all-purpose flour.

Now, who would have thought that these creepy-crawly insects could find their way inside kitchens? However, based on studies, 2 teaspoons of cricket flour are loaded with 12 grams of protein. The flour is also enriched with vitamin B12, iron, good fats and low in carbohydrates.

There’s also cricket baking  flour which has been used for protein bars by a company called Exo Protein. has gotten in on the action. Twelve of these bars can be had for approximately $36.00.

I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail.
