Iinsect food products - what is currently available

In this post I am going to show you what insect food products are currently available online and sometimes even in the supermarkets!

You may have heard about an insect food product on the internet or even on your supermarket shelves? Maybe you even saw a sign “edible insects for sale” somewhere!

As the trend rapidly increases, more and more companies are putting products out there that contain insects. And in this post I want to show you the breadth and depth of products we have seen.

The following will show you a list of food with insects. I have included such information as:

  • Who is producing the product
  • What insect ingredients the product contains
  • Where you can buy it
  • What the products look like

Things are constantly changing in this industry, so forgive me if this is not complete.

If you know of a product that is not in this post, please feel free to let me know.

And if you want a detailed breakdown of how great cricket powders and flours are for us and the environment, you should check out my recent post.

What A List of Insect Food Products!

As you can see from this amazing list of insect food products, there are a huge variety of products, producers and ingredients already out there on the market.

And all of this is taking place despite the lack clarity on the actual state of legislation in most western countries. Although this may change when the EU makes their ruling later this year.

Last but not least, this is a work in progress so if you see an error or know of a product that is not in this post, please feel free to let me know.
