GRASSHOPPERS - PEPPER & DRIED TOMATOES
WOULD YOU LIKE SOME INSECTS TO EAT FOR THE APPETIZER?
Discover the amazing crisp of our edible grasshoppers seasoned with pepper and dried tomatoes!
These delicious insects to eat are bred with a maximum care in special farms exclusively located in Europe, for an optimal traceability and the highest quality as possible. In order to keep the insects fresh for a long time, without losing any nutritional and taste properties, our edible grasshoppers are dehydrated before being seasoned.
Naturally, grasshoppers have a subtle and discrete taste, very similar to hazelnuts’ flavours, that is why we developed fine recipes, which give them more crunch and a delicious taste of Provence, for a perfect appetizer to share with friends. Cooked in our own workshops in Vaux-le-Pénil, near Paris, we use high-quality spices and condiments to delight your taste buds. Guaranteed without artificial flavourings or preservatives, our insects to eat are cooked “à la française”. Look no further, JIMINI’S is the guarantee of a great moment that you will remember.
EDIBLE GRASSHOPPERS, FINE DISH, AND SNACK, NIGHTMARE FOR FARMERS
The edible grasshoppers, Locusta migratoria, are part of the Acridians species that we can meet in different regions of the world, and especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Australia or along the Mediterranean coast. Just like their cousins, the desert or red locusts, grasshoppers have an insatiable appetite and are able to travel long distances flying or jumping which makes them impressively harmful for crops.
WHY SHOULD WE EAT GRASSHOPPERS?
In Europeans’ minds, insects to eat rhyme, for a long time, with proteins, which is totally true. In fact, eating grasshoppers is a significant source of proteins already considered in different countries. With 40% of protein for this edible insect, numerous organizations such as the FAO (part of the UNO) or the WHO (World Health Organization) already consider insect consumption as a solution to feed the rising world population.
However the benefits of insects to eat are multiple: consuming little food and water, contaminating fewer grounds and water and emitting fewer greenhouse gases, eating grasshoppers is environmentally friendly. When we know that 20 to 30% of the greenhouse gas contamination is the result of livestock farming, we directly understand the advantages of this type of protein!
