Eliminating global hunger has proven to be a difficult challenge, but at Arbor, we believe in doing what is necessary despite difficulty. We believe crickets are the answer.
If we were to sell just 1000 pounds of cricket as a substitute to the American diet for 1000 pounds of beef, we would save the environment 2.4 million gallons of water, 6 acres of land, more than 5 tons of grain, and prevent nearly 7 tons of CO2 production!
Crickets are very high in nutrition. They contain three times as much protein per gram as beef, they are high in Omega 3 oils, Calcium, Vitamin B12, prebiotics, Fiber, and Iron. Just fifty grams contain the recommended daily dosage of all nine-essential amino acids.
Not only are insects great for people, but they are a natural source of protein for your furry companions!
Have you ever seen a cat or dog hunting around for cows or pigs in the back yard? Of course not! Our pets chase crickets and other insects hopping around in the grass.
Why not give them the natural protein they desire?
