I'm struggling to find a definitive answer to each of the above. I appreciate different species and particularly diet make a difference to the final result but the variance in reported results is absolutely huge. I've read academic papers claiming crickets are c20% protein, increasing to around 40% when various oils and fat are removed (for Ach Dom):
The report above quotes other studies claiming the same.
However, there are numerous commercial concerns quoting 60-70% protein content for crickets in both a wet weight and powdered form, complete with nutritional breakdown tables.
Can anyone shed any light on the disceprancy?
