Why eat mealworms?
Nutrition: Mealworm flour contains high levels of essential amino and fatty acids and is 55.4% protein, making it more than twice as efficient as the equivalent serving of beef.
Environment: Unlike traditional livestock, Mealworms require little space, food, and water to thrive.
Save Space: Mealworms are maintained in tiered, vertical farms about a square foot around, ideal for crowded settings.
Reduce Waste: MealFlour farms can be constructed from up-cycled materials, the mealworms themselves eat organic food waste, and the mealworm frass makes a great plant fertilizer. By integrating into local communities, MealFlour minimizes the costs and emissions associated with transportation that are needed to supply neighborhoods with quality protein.
