Bangkok-based company bugsolutely is selling Cricket Pasta, pasta made in part with... crickets. Albeit a business, their social project is to show that insects convert feed into protein in a much more effective way and produce significantly less greenhouse gasses than a cow.

Bugsolutely Cricket Pasta is the result of months of research with multiple manufacturers. It’s a mix of durum semolina flour, wheat flour, and cricket flour sourced from selected suppliers. Thanks to the cricket flour, the pasta’s distinctive brown color (see our photo gallery) matches the typical earthy taste which is often associated with roasted almonds. The product is now readily available as fusilli, in a 350 gr (12.3 Oz) sealed package.
