Insects. They’re nutritious, less resource-intensive than livestock, and according to a third of the world’s population, delicious. Despite advocacy by activists and the United Nations, eating insects just isn’t catching on in the West. Icelandic entrepreneur Búi Bjarmar Aðalsteinsson and his company Crowbar Protein hope to change that with their protein bar, Jungle Bar. This protein bar is 200 calories, contains 8 grams of proteins, and 20% of the bar consists of cricket flour. The rest of the bar is made from dates, sesame, pumpkin, and sunflower seeds. If eating insects is still not your thing, another solution to our increasing global demand for protein may be found in in vitro meat. Although the technology is still very new, it exists.
