How insects tastes like?
We’ll see you must be thinking our answer is going to be summed up in a single word, ‘terrible’, but NO! It is not the case in reality. Insects, no doubt, doesn’t taste that great, but their tastes can be made good to eat, easily. Nowadays people are using cricket and mealworms flour instead of the insect as a whole. Proper addition of certain taste enhancers can not only give them a great taste but also will increase your appetite.
What all is in Trend? Are insect bars for real?
Yes! Just like protein shakes and protein bars which are packed with proteins and are stacked up in super stores, insect bars also exists and don’t make a judgement just yet! They are easily available also!
There are several brands that are making protein bars that have the main ingredients as insects. Here are some examples:
Mostly consumed as a post-workout bar the mealworm bar is a snack bar with added proteins and with protein we mean mealworms, ground. Their usual contents are coconut flour, dates, mealworm flour, cashew, and cacao. Some manufacturers also use artificial sweeteners.
ust like the mealworm bars cricket bars are also available in several flavors such as coffee and vanilla. The ingredients are more or less similar, but it has more amounts of a sweet taste to it, so some people likes it the most.
So what do you think? Boiled, roasted or bars? I’ll prefer bars because of obvious reasons. But is it worth calling them future protein sources?
