You probably noticed more and more companies selling insect protein. Well, insect protein may be better than traditional meat sources.
A study published in the European Journal Of Clinical Nutrition made a comparison of various edible insects with chicken, beef and pork and discovered that in general the insects provided a broader range of nutrients.
The quality and levels of protein were discovered to be roughly similar – but farming insects uses up to 90% less land per kilo of protein, making it more sustainable. This also means cheaper shakes, as long as you don’t mind beetle flavour.
