I wrote about edible flowers.
Now I found edible cricket powder for baking. Japanese bread maker named Pasco released bread and cakes made from crickets for a limited time last December.
By 2050, the world population will approach 10 billion, raising concerns about food shortages. Pasco is working on a new project to overcome future food insecurity.
Pasco uses “edible cricket powder,” which is attracting worldwide attention as a next-generation protein source for baking. It says that the cakes are a set of eating and comparing 10 and 30 crickets, and you can enjoy the difference in taste. It adds that Breads are attractive for their aroma and umami that you can feel as you chew.
Do you want to try them?
