We work with a couple of domestic cricket farms that specifically raise crickets for human consumption. Our crickets are currently fed a Certified-Organic grain-based diet and filtered water. We are constantly focused on optimizing the feed and are experimenting with various options including organic matter like orange peels and cornhusks.
After cleaning the crickets, we dry them to remove the moisture and mill them into fine flour. The result is slightly nutty-tasting flour that is high in protein and micronutrients.
According to some interpretations of Leviticus, crickets (along with grasshoppers, locusts and katydids) are indeed kosher as they have jointed legs and hop on the ground. It’s contentious exactly which type of cricket was being referred to, however, and we have therefore been unable to receive official kosher certification (yet). If you are a rabbi and interested in discussing this further, please call Gabi at (401) 527-7202.
Technically, no. But depending on your motivations for being vegan or vegetarian, you might be willing to eat insects. If you’re concerned about environmental impact, raising crickets is dramatically less harmful than raising traditional livestock. As invertebrates, crickets also have a much less developed nervous system than other animals. Renowned ethicist Peter Singer has expressed that he has no problem with killing insects.
There are approximately 40 crickets in each bar.
We are always looking for new partners. However, at this time we can only work with vendors actually producing crickets. If you are currently producing and are interested in working with us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "New Cricket Vendor Inquiry". Please include: your monthly volumes, your lowest pricing per lb of frozen crickets, what you feed the crickets, and how long your lead times are.
Our primary motivation for starting Exo was to create a range of bars that not only taste great but are actually good for you. We’re confident we’ve succeeded in reaching that goal. We use only whole, minimally processed, and pronounceable ingredients in our recipes, which are all developed by our amazing three-Michelin-Star chef. Our bars are high in protein, low in sugar and incredibly nutritionally dense, making them perfect for snacking, meal-replacement or pre/post-exercise.
All of our bars contain 270-300 calories, 10g protein, 14-20g fat, 13-18g sugar, and 5-7g fiber. If you compare macronutrients in isolation, some other bars might at first appear to be healthier. But comparing ingredients tells you everything you need to know: while we use only real, nutrient-dense whole foods in our bars, many other bars achieve their nutritional profile by using a long list of ingredients that you need a PhD in biochemistry to recognize. The healthy fats in our bars are from nut butters and the carbohydrates are from fruits and honey.
Our Cocoa Nut, Blueberry Vanilla, Banana Bread, and Apple Cinnamon flavors are 100% Paleo, but our PB&J bars do contain peanuts (a legume), as well as small amounts of certified gluten-free oats and puffed brown rice for texture.
Because we use only ultra-premium ingredients and zero preservatives, the shelf life of our bars is eight months.
Crickets are not shellfish and therefore do not need to be labeled as a shellfish allergen. However, some people will be allergic to crickets because there are people that are allergic to everything. The reason people have said that crickets and shellfish share an allergen is because they are distantly related, and so it is the closest common allergen.
Currently, our limited capacity doesn't allow us to do so, but we have plans for this in the near future. Stay tuned.
Absolutely; we believe that Exo is a social venture in the most fundamental way. We don’t complement our business with a separate social mechanism on the side (a la Tom’s shoes); rather, the very core of our business is about trying to change the way people think about an untapped food source, which, if successful, will have enormous positive impact on the world.
We believe delicious and healthy protein bars are an intelligent first step towards normalizing the consumption of insects, which will in turn have enormous global impact. Much like the California Roll first introduced Westerners to sushi in the 1960s by combining the raw fish with avocado, rice and seaweed, we intend our bars to serve as an introductory vehicle for insects by combining cricket flour with more familiar ingredients like nut butters and fruits. The sashimi comes later.
