Icelandic startup Crowbar Protein is crowdfunding sustainable protein bars made using edible insects. Jungle Bar is a protein bar made with dates, sesame, sunflower & pumpkin seeds, chocolate and cricket flour. The flour is made out of crickets that have been specially farmed for human consumption in a sustainable way, which are then dried and ground down to fine flour. Crowbar Protein co-founder Búi Aðalsteinsson created the Fly Factory last year and realized that there was a real demand for insect products.
You can support Crowbar Protein‘s mission to create delicious food products made with edible insects and help educate people in western society about the individual and social benefits of eating edible insects by supporting their Kickstarter campaign here.
