Short description: One minced meat base with countless possibilities. Try it - Taste it - Love it!
Insects have already received attention as a potential protein source of the future and could be an ideal food for flexitarians. But how can they be integrated into the familiar diet? This is where Insectastic comes in. Insectastic is unbeatable due to its versatility. As the first insect-based minced meat product, it can be processed into burgers, bolognese, boulettes, fillings, chili con carne and much more, just like normal minced meat. This meets the requirements of a modern individual cuisine of today. Insectastic already appeals to the consumer in the shop, because just like minced meat, Insectastic goes straight from the mincer into the packaging and is in no way inferior to the original. Insectastic offers the possibility of using insects conveniently and easily in already known recipes, because it not only looks like minced meat, but can also be prepared in the same way. In addition to the main ingredient, buffalo worms, Insectastic contains chickpeas and various plant ingredients. Insectastic thus offers the consumer a climate-friendly and sustainable alternative to beef or pork mince. When packaging Insectastic, care was taken to reduce the amount of plastic as much as possible. Thus, it consists mainly of a stable cardboard tray, in which a plastic insert merely serves to seal the product and its technological properties. The two packaging components can be easily disposed of separately after use.
