Ditsa Keren from Delivery Rank wrote an article on may 29th, 2022, highlighting 5 FoodTech founders sharing their latest developments in protein Diversification. Global Bugs CEO and Co Founder Ms. Kanitsanan Thanthitiwat is one of them.
Protein is one of the most important elements in our diet. It’s responsible for many important bodily functions such as cell renewal, muscle building, reproduction, child development, and so much more.
About 12% of the world’s population is estimated to be suffering from inadequate protein intake. You might be part of that statistic because you’re vegan or maybe you just haven’t been paying attention to your protein intake. Whatever the reason, you’re not alone. An increasing number of FoodTech companies are making way for a new era of alternative protein sources that are better for you and for the planet.
Delivery Rank spoke to five FoodTech founders that are doing incredible work in this field, offering innovative protein sources in a variety of delicious flavors and textures. So, if you’ve been looking for a way to diversify your protein sources, here are some great options you can try.
Crickets help improve the natural bacteria in the gut microbiome and reduce inflammation in the body. They provide a complete protein with all 18 amino acids, including all nine essential amino acids.
As crickets are farmed for human consumption, we must comply with standards and regulations for food safety. That’s why we’ve set our demands according to the EFSA novel food regulations that’ll be implemented in the EU in 2022.
We’re also a part of the consortium – Belgium Insect Industry Federation (BIIF) – where we’re just about to send in our dossier to the EFSA for approval of the house cricket for human consumption in the EU.
This means that we’re farming in a closed environment and processing the crickets in a regulated way, just as if we were producing any kind of meat, dairy, or poultry product for human consumption. We follow GHP, GAP, and HACCP regulations where we’re fully certified as well.
Our B2B flagship product is EntoPowder, which we also use to produce our customer products such as protein bars, snacks, bakery, and pastry products.
As we control the whole food supply chain from feed to packing through farming and processing, we guarantee that the quality is always high and stable.
