So crickets!

The cricket extract is characterized by the umami and saltiness of seafood, and can be used like soy sauce as a seasoning!

In addition, 100g of grillus extract contains about 20g of protein, so you can easily take in protein by simply adding a little to your usual cooking.

The important point for the recipe introduced this time is to "do not add too much extract".
Mayonnaise itself has a salty taste, so if you add too much extract, it will become salty.

When cooking, it is recommended to add the extract little by little and adjust it while checking the taste.

Why Cricket?

The protein crisis that will occur in the future and the food loss problem that is currently occurring mainly in developed countries. In order to solve both of these problems, Grilas grows edible crickets using food waste as food.
