This Flour Is Keto-Friendly and Gluten-Free...and Made from a *Very* Surprising Ingredient

If you’ve dabbled in the ketogenic diet, you know that carbs are, for the most part, off-limits. That means no more refined white flour, breads or cookies. (Womp, womp.) If only there were a keto-friendly, low-carb flour swap…

Lucky for you, such a thing exists. It's called Pure Powder, and it's made by Seek Food. The only catch? It's made entirely of crickets.

Before you turn up your nose, know that the bug powder has 14 grams of protein and 2 grams of carbohydrates per serving, making it totally cool for ketosis (if that's your thing). According to the brand, it imparts a slightly nutty taste to whatever you're cooking, and can be used in everything from smoothies to tamales. And for what it's worth, the entire Seek Food lineup is backed by a plethora of culinary pros—from James Beard-nominated chefs to cookbook authors.

If you donate to the Kickstarter fund, you can get your cricket flour by September. (Don't knock it till you try it, right?)
