How can a protein bar be sustainable? Aren’t all protein bars sustainable? Is it just a gimmick to add insects? Great questions, we’ll try to answer:
Our protein bars consist solely of natural ingredients. Organic dates and nuts - and then of course the buffalo beetle powder. The buffalo beetles are a natural source of high protein - as well as vitamin B12, iron, fibre, zinc, etc.
More Nutrition, Less Resources
Having a climate-friendly diet means receiving the nutritional benefits you need, while using as few of the planet’s resources as possible.
When choosing a snack, it is far more sustainable to consume something healthy with a bunch of nutrients, than a snack with fewer nutrients - even if these don’t contain anything from animals.
Instead of meat?
The buffalo beetles contain a bunch of important nutrients that you normally gain through meat products. These essential nutrients can be difficult to get enough of through a plant-based diet. A Hey Planet bar can do the trick, and work as a natural supplement as well as enabling a more meatless diet. Also, in order to eat sustainably and healthy, we should consume more nuts and fruit than the average person eats a day.
Since our bars are made with dates, almonds and or peanuts, this also contributes to having a healthy diet that is within the planetary boundaries.
Because the buffalo beetles are an animal source of protein they contain all the essential amino acids that your body needs – just like meat.
