Edible Insects

Edible insects contain high-quality nutrients including protein, vitamins, minerals and healthy fatty acids.
An estimated 2 billion people worldwide already consume insects on a daily basis, mostly in South-America, Africa and Asia. A great variety of insects are being consumed in these regions, based on the climate and culinary preferences. However in Europe and North-America, there is still a lot of resentment against this healthy and sustainability food source. At Kreca Ento-Food BV we aim to change this by creating awareness for the many advantages of insects both in terms of health as well as impact on the environment.

Health

Edible insects are packed with natural, healthy nutrients such as protein, vitamins, minerals, iron and healthy omega fatty acids. Compared to other food types, insects have an extreme high concentration of these nutrients, which makes them a highly efficient food source. Insects are furthermore very suitable to be processed into ingredients for various food applications.

The Environmemt

The current food industry is having a significant negative impact on our environment. With the growing world population and rising demand for nutritional food, it is critical we start searching for a sustainable solution in order to feed the world without consuming the earth. Insects are the solution as they require little feed, land and water and have a limited impact on the environment.

There are currently 4 types on insects approved for human consumption: buffaloworms, mealworms, grasshoppers and crickets. At Kreca Ento-Food BV we breed and process insects as a high quality source of nutrients for human consumption. We offer whole freezedried insects and insect powders.
