Crik Nutrition has developed a protein powder made primarily out of crickets. This particular insect has a high nutritional content and easy sustainability versus other protein sources.

The goal is to use crickets, and potentially other insects, not only because of their nutritional value but because of their minimal eco-footprint. The organization says crickets produce 71 grams of protein per 100 gallons of water versus the 6 grams of protein that beef produces. Currently, Crik Nutrition comes in a vanilla-flavored powder.
