Crickets are part of the products in this food company

Bugeater Foods, a startup which works from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus has incorporated crickets into their food products.

Ground to powder, these crickets are being used as key ingredient in the new pasta and rice products which are being produced.

The idea is to make the food taste good and in turn help the customers to overcome the hesitation of having to eat insects. The insects, however, contain high protein, healthy fats, fiber, vitamins and minerals, making them a necessary inclusion in the food preparations.
