Cricket-Based Bread Now Available For Insect-Loving Finns

November 26, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Recent surveys of Scandinavian people have found that the Finns are the most receptive to eating insects. Armed with that data, a Finnish food company’s bakery division has created bread containing 70 crickets – dried and powdered – in each loaf. Known as Sirkkaleipa (cricket bread) the loaves are rich in protein, as well as insect-derived fatty acids, calcium, iron, and vitamin B12. The first batches of cricket bread are now on sale in major Finnish cities, but there is not enough cricket flour available yet for a nationwide rollout. The goal is to have the bread available in 47 bakeries in Finland in the near future. Insect-based foods of various kinds are also sold in Switzerland, Belgium, Britain, Denmark, and The Netherlands.  [Image Credit: © ThinkSect ]
