Today I finally made the change. After operating this website with the domain name of www.EatBugs.info since I launched it, I changed it. I had purchased two really good keyword domain names but did not want to start all over again and go through a complete rebuild if I could avoid it. Today I just went ahead and switched domains. It was pretty easy.
This website and blog will now appear at www.InsectProtein.net and I’ll still forward visitors from the previous domain. In fact, I had been forwarding from the Insect Protein domain ever since I registered it, and that is why I decided to make the complete switch. Traffic figures were showing me that visitors were coming from that domain name so it made sense to change.
What’s The Deal About Insect Protein?
Aside from being a common search term used by people like you on the internet, there really is something serious about insect protein. The average cricket contains 65-percent protein. Compare that to a cow and there is a difference in that beef totals roughly 50-percent protein. Then there’s fat. Insects contain less than 5-percent fat per serving.
Where insect protein really makes a difference is when you look at what it does to the environment. Because insect farming takes less space, the insects are easy to feed and can survive all kinds of different conditions, they are considered more sustainable. Plus, the protein in insects carries a lot of additional benefits identified collectively as nutrients.
Nutrient Rich Little Buggers
The list of nutrients present in bugs is impressive. They have a wide variety of amino acids, minerals and vitamins. Add to this unsaturated fatty acids and even polyunsaturated fatty acids and you have a solid nutrient base in a single source. Also, there is no shortage of choices as there are well over 3-hundred different species of insects in the world.
Yummy, Yummy, Get In My Tummy
Finally, what makes the whole idea of munching on crickets, mealworms or ants even more interesting is that they can be prepared in many, many ways. Aside from dipped in chocolate you can have your insects roasted, baked with oil and seasoning salt. You can fry them, boil them or grind them up with flour for baking in several ways. Cricket Cookies, anyone?
