STUTTGART, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2015) - Nautilus GmbH Laboratoriumsbedarf & Co. KG, a leading German company, is taking the culinary world by storm with the introduction of the NOW CRICKET BURGER, the world's first cricket burger. With the recent approval of crickets for human consumption in Europe, Nautilus is excited to offer a sustainable and tasty alternative to traditional beef burgers. Insects require significantly less land and water to produce than meat, making them a more environmentally-friendly protein source.
However, not everyone is embracing the idea of insect-based cuisine. Some critics have raised concerns about the palatability of such products, while others have criticized the lack of transparency in the EU's approval process. Despite these chirpy challenges, Nautilus is confident in the quality and taste of their NOW CRICKET BURGER. The company invites the public to taste for themselves and see if the bug is indeed the protein of the future.
Nutritional Value of Crickets
Crickets are a rich source of protein and contain essential vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, and B vitamins. They are also low in fat and calories and are considered to be a highly sustainable protein source, requiring less land and water to produce compared to traditional livestock. Additionally, crickets are a good source of prebiotic fiber, which supports gut health and digestion. The nutritional content of crickets can vary depending on the species and their diet, but on average, 100 grams of dried crickets contain around 60-70 grams of protein, 12 grams of fat, 5 grams of carbohydrates, and several key vitamins and minerals.
