Comments Off on ZoicBars protein bars are made using insects

Global food demand is about to increase significantly. In 2050 the world will be home to more than 9 billion people. To feed that many people we will need an alternative source of food and insects are a promising solution. They require far less land than cattle, are much more efficient in producing protein from feed, use almost no water, and don’t produce greenhouse gases. It is not just about sustainability though, insects are a great source of nutrition for our body too! They contain high quality proteins, healthy fats, fiber and minerals. To help ease the transition into insect-based foods, ZoicBars is making protein bars using insect flour, dates, nuts and cacao for a deliciously sustainable way to feed your hunger. + ZoicBars
