While the meat supply chain is being destroyed by governments who claim nitrogen is evil -- yes, the very same governments that still claim carbon dioxide is a pollutant even though it's the pillar of photosynthesis -- we're all being told to eat crickets and mealworms to save the planet.
See the related story, "Europeans will soon be eating bugs after mealworms get the green light from food regulators."
Right now, various forms of crickets -- cricket "cheesy ranch" snacks, cricket powder and cricket protein powder -- are sold on Amazon.com and labeled for human consumption.
We purchased three brands of crickets for human consumption -- Cricket Bites, Entomo and Bud's -- plus one brand labeled for consumption by reptiles: Fluker's.
Here's a closer look at the brands we purchased and the video microscope setup we are using at our food science lab:
We proceeded to take microscopy photographs at magnifications ranging from 50X to 300X.
Here are some microscopy photos of Entomo Farms' Cricket Protein Powder, which is labeled as, "The planet's most sustainable superfood." Many cricket products are also labeled dairy-free, non-GMO, paleo friendly and gluten-free.
None of them are labeled chitin-free, however, since they are loaded with chitin, part of the exoskeletons of crickets and bugs. Consuming chitin carries its own risks for humans and dogs, but we aren't covering that in this article.
Here, notice how this cricket protein powder contains all the parts of the crickets: The legs, hairs, segments of eyes, excretion organs, wings and more:
Next, we feature microscopy photos of Fluker's Freeze Dried Crickets, which are labeled for consumption by reptiles. However, these appear to be the same crickets used in human consumption formulas sold under other brands.
Meet your new bug lunch:
The part of the cricket that opens and closes the rear end of the cricket to dispose of fecal matter is called the "Dorsal valve" (on top) and "Ventral valve" (on bottom). You might also call it the "poop chute claw," because it claws shut after the cricket poops.
Here's a closeup of the poop chute claw, which you're also eating if you eat crickets:
Some parts of the crickets were unidentifiable but creepy looking, resembling creatures from the movie series Aliens:
Don't forget your crispy wings:
Yummy leg sockets...
Cricket food companies have tried to make their crunchy crickets more tasty by adding salt and flavorings. The Cricket Bites brand adds various spices and cheese flavorings to produce their "Cheesy Ranch" flavor. They also offer crickets in "Hickory Smoked Bacon," which seems a bit hilarious, given that the whole point of eating crickets is to avoid eating meat products like bacon.
This brand also uses autolyzed yeast extract, a flavor enhancer known to contain glutamate:

When it comes to cricket food products, one thing you have to give the industry credit about is the fact that most cricket food providers aren't lying about what's in their product. A brand called Bud's Cricket Power is labeled as, "100% Pure Cricket Powder."
No lies. No deception. It's just ground up cricket, plain and simple. Whether you should actually eat ground up crickets is up to you, but at least there's no dishonest labeling at play here, unlike many processed junk food products which are wildly deceptive.
Here's what Bud's Cricket Power "100% pure cricket powder" looks like up close:
Yummy hair-like fibers are included at no extra charge:

Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called "Food Forensics"), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics.
Mike Adams also serves as the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
