Australian energy bars with cricket protein go on sale

Australian energy bars with cricket protein go on sale

Insect-based food brand Hoppa has launched a new range of energy bars made from cricket protein. The latest addition joins the brand’s cricket-based food, such as protein powder, baking powder, and pasta.

Cricket protein is one of the most sustainable sources of food on earth, which only consumes 12 times less food and 2000 times less water to produce the same amount of protein as cattle. 

Available in cinnamon and chia, coconut and pumpkin seed, cocoa and cashew, and peanut butter and oat flavours, each bar contains 10-11 grams of protein, along with Vitamin B12, iron, and complete aminos and omegas.

The company says the new energy bars are made from sustainably raised crickets, ground into a fine powder, giving it a neutral taste and texture, sweetened naturally with dates.

Each bar is 100-per-cent natural, dairy-free, wheat-free, and paleo-friendly. 

“Since we launched our first insect-based superfood range back in 2019, awareness of the benefits of insect consumption has snowballed, and we’ve seen increased demand for our innovative products,” said Channy Sandhu, Hoppa‘s founder.

“We are delighted to introduce our new 100-per-cent natural and sustainable cricket protein energy bars to give our customers more choice than ever before.”

Hoppa’s cricket energy bars are available nationwide and can be ordered directly via the brand’s official website.
