The newest healthy and planet-friendly food

A couple in Finland has abandoned their pig farm in favour of raising crickets. It has yielded 1,500 kilograms (3,300 pounds) of edible protein this year, much of which is ground into an ingredient for products from chocolate to breakfast granola. According to the United Nation’s Food & Agriculture Organization, producing a kilogram of crickets takes less than a fifth of the feed but yields the same amount of protein as beef. Insects also require significantly less water and don’t need antibiotics or growth hormones.
