Crickets and Flour?

A smile came across my face this morning when  fellow RD, Kate Geagan    beholden unto me in my inbox the amino acid profile of cricket flour!

Cricket protein seems to be the newest novelty in protein, but is it a complete protein, meaning it contains all the essential amino acids that are necessary but not produced by the body? No but, it does rank well in leucine content. I  do however question the accuracy of Cricket Flours data. Whey protein concentrate’s leucine level is HIGHER than soy protein isolate. So body-builders don’t go thickin’ every things is all crickets and flours now!
