A company in San Francisco called Bitty Foods is grinding up crickets and processing them into flour that they use in baked goods.

That’s right … crickets.

You see, crickets are supposedly a good source of protein.

Not only that, they’re said to be packed with amino acids, omega-3 fatty acids, insoluble fiber, potassium, and B-vitamins.

They also have more iron than beef.

 

So the next time you make yourself a protein shake, consider throwing a few of the little critters in the blender. Or not.
