If you do not care about reading the ingredients of the food products you consume, then be prepared to eat anything. Ignore-ance doesn’t make our problems go away; it only makes the situation they create worse.

Previously, we have highlighted some of the most disturbing ingredients that are openly being used in many food products. In addition to that list, we would like to bring your attention to cricket (insect) flour.

Insects are considered to be the most efficient form of protein by those who subscribe to the protein mythology. On that note, they are now using this argument as one of their main excuses to eat insects and to normalize the habit.

Cricket flour is made by milling crickets, it takes approximately 1,050 crickets to get one pound of cricket flour. Quite a few companies have already adapted to this developing trend, even those that produce "health" snacks. Cricket flour is made from house crickets or what is scientifically known as Acheta Domesticus. Either name can be listed in the ingredients of any food product; so, if you are not in conformity with eating crickets, make sure to remember the name so that you can avoid doing so.
