Peanut butter has a very high defect* rate as does chocolate. Jello or anything with gelatin

Chocolate:
Insect filth(AOAC 965.38) Average is 60 or more insect fragments per 100 grams when 6 100-gram subsamples are examined
OR
Any 1 subsample contains 90 or more insect fragments

Rodent filth(AOAC 965.38) Average is 1 or more rodent hairs per 100 grams in 6 100-gram subsamples examined
OR
Any 1 subsample contains 3 or more rodent hairs

DEFECT SOURCE: Insect fragments - post harvest and/or processing insect infestation, Rodent hair - post harvest and/or processing contamination with animal hair or excreta, Shell - processing contamination

You've all been eating "cricket flour" for years.

exactly. don't forget algae as the other low environmental impact, high yield, high nutrition food source.

my kids won't eat jello after I told them what it's made from. I think it's sad americans are so hung up on only eating the least nutritious parts of animals...

As long as they're cleaned to high standards, don't see a problem here. They're delicacies in many countries.

No problem with crickets, but if it tastes like a protein powder (as it's described), then it probaby tastes pretty awful. I'd rather eat them fried whole.

I hear whole ones taste like soft shell crab. Batter and fry em' up.

Believe it or not, lobster used to be the "cockroach of the ocean" back in the day. Imagine feeling disgusted by lobster.

as soon as my current supply of protein powder runs low I'll order some of the cricket powder and post my reviews. maybe I'll do a comparo of whey vs veggie vs cricket. even better, I'll use my family as the blind taste testers.
