Insects use far fewer resources than the meat we usually eat. 80% of countries and 2.5 billion people are already eating foods containing crickets, primarily in Latin America, Africa, Asia and Oceania ,People eat insects all over the world, and in many places they are a delicacy, or eaten as a common snack. In fact more people eat insects than speak English! Besides tasting great, Chirps Cricket Chips are eco-friendly because raising crickets uses 2000x less water and produces 1% of the greenhouse gas emissions as beef. It takes 2000 gallons of water to make a pound of beef, but it only takes 1 gallon to make 1 pound of cricket flour. Also, crickets provide more protein and less fat. It's that simple. In fact, ,these chips were ,developed because the creators of Chirps want everyone to know that bugs are delicious, nutritious, and sustainable. Raising crickets takes much less space than raising farm animals. They can even be raised in cities and almost anywhere, therefore reducing the distance from farm to table. Also, crickets can be fed produce that would normally be thrown away which helps reduce the 60 million tons of food waste produced in the US each year. Join Chirps and #eatbugs! NutritiousChirps chips are more nutritious than most chips. They have more ,protein and ,way less ,fat. Crickets have more iron than spinach, more B12 than salmon, and are one of the most naturally high protein foods around. Fun fact: each chip contains 1 cricket. Crickets? Safe? Clean?Cricket flour is crickets dried and milled into a high protein powder. Chirps gets their crickets from cricket farms in North America. People tend to think that insects are dirty because we are used to seeing them in the garden or as unwanted guests in our houses. However, ,Chirps' cricket farms are some of the cleanest places. The crickets are kept in separate boxes based on life stage and are fed a non-GMO and gluten free diet. They must be raised under FDA guidelines, and ,Chirps' farm performs regular testing on the flour to ensure the highest quality and safety. Are They Vegetarian?Laura (co-founder of Chirps) ,is a vegetarian who eats insects, which is called an "entotarian." There are lots of vegetarians who eat insects, as crickets are full of protein and B12, two things that vegetarians often struggle to get enough of. Whether insects are right for you depends on why you are vegetarian. In many ways, insects are much more sustainable than other animals and even some plant sources. They also have a limited central nervous system and lack pain receptors, which is why many vegetarians decide to eat bugs! ,Chirps recommends you do your own research and come to your own decision. Potential AllergensBecause insects are in the same family as shellfish, if you are allergic to shellfish, you may be sensitive to crickets as well. Chirps' StoryIn college, Laura was studying abroad in Tanzania and met a woman selling fried caterpillars on the side of the street. Despite being a bit hesitant, she bought one, bit down, and her first thought was, “Wow! This tastes like lobster!” When she returned to the US, Rose and Meryl jumped on board, and after a few escaped crickets in the dorm room later, Chirps was born. Chirps believes that insects are the food of the future and they want the world to taste why.
