Why Cricket Flour?
Your Paleolithic ancestors ate crickets long ago as a primary source of protein, and over 80% of countries worldwide still consume insects daily. The human body has grown accustomed to cricket protein over the millennia and can process it efficiently without any unnatural strain on your bodily functions caused by many other synthesized proteins. Cricket protein is a sustainable source of high quality protein that uses exponentially less water and energy to grow, while keeping it NATURAL. It’s naturally packed with micronutrients like calcium, iron, B-vitamins, fiber, and Omega Fatty Acids for superior nutrition. It’s better for the environment and better for you; it’s old school nutrition - modernized.
Using crickets has proven to be an impactful way to sustainably raise high-quality protein that uses exponentially less water, land, and food inputs than other traditional proteins. With an ever growing population and diminishing water supply, crickets have been identified by scientists and organizations worldwide as the definitive answer to meet the demands of our changing environment. Feel good about eating Lithic Cricket Powder and know you are helping reduce your carbon footprint.

Also known as "cricket flour," they are humanely frozen, boiled to pasteurize, then roasted and milled into a fine powder. Our crickets come from FDA registered facilities that practice GMPs and HACCP plans, and every batch is tested for human consumption.
