Crickets, like other insects, contain fibers, such as chitin, that are different from the dietary fiber found in foods like fruits and vegetables. Fiber serves as a microbial food source and some fiber types promote the growth of beneficial bacteria, also known as probiotics. Jiminy’s partnered with Animal-Biome to study the impact of cricket protein on the dog’s gut. And great news – cricket protein supports a healthy, balanced level of gut bacteria diversity (gut microbiome) in dogs. It’s pre-biotic!
Crickets are an amazing and complete protein source with all of the essential amino acids that you find in other animal proteins. The protein itself (without additives) meets AAFCO requirements for dogs. Cricket protein contains 3x more protein than beef and 2x more iron than spinach!
Beef, chicken, lamb, soy and even fish are the most common ingredients that trigger dog allergies. Insect protein is an alternative protein for the dogs and we haven’t seen dogs exhibiting allergies to this protein. In fact, veterinarians are already using Jiminy’s in elimination diets (eliminating all known allergens to try to determine what the actual allergy is) because insect protein is not an allergen.
Insect protein is truly a sustainable protein source. Better land use and feed conversion. In addition, less water and almost no greenhouse gases. If you take a dog who is eating a chicken-based diet and switch to an insect based diet, we save 480,000 gallons of water per year.
We say humane because of the way that the crickets are raised, the amount of their natural life lived and the way they’re harvested. Crickets are naturally a swarming species, and like being in a dark, warm place. They’re raised in cricket condos (inside barns) which allow the crickets to live in a way as close as possible to how they would live in the natural world. They are free to hop from feed station to feed station, and can burrow deep into the condos if they choose. Harvesting time comes near the end of their natural life cycle – which is approximately 6 weeks.
