Greg and Gabi are determined to feed us tasty cricket bar that are healthy and full of protein, but that also grow awareness to the advantages of insect food sources— social and nutritional benefits. They graduated from Brown in May ‘13 and immediately moved to New York City to begin their mission.
They teamed up with a rock star chef who used to head up research and development at The Fat Duck Restaurant, considered one of the best and most progressive restaurants in the world. To prove that there was indeed a market for insect-based foods, They launched a Kickstarter in late July; within 72 hours, we had reached our $20,000 goal.
Insects are exceptionally nutritious. They are high in protein and low in saturated fats and sugars. They are a complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids, and are also high in micronutrients such as iron, calcium and B-vitamins. Crickets are 20x more efficient to raise for protein than cattle.
