(Scroll down for video) A company said that their peanut butter and jelly bars contain a high amount of protein because they use ground bugs.

Around 40 crickets are put into each Exo bar, and it has a very high protein to weight ratio.

The bars are made with cricket flour. Machines remove the moisture from the insects before grinding them into a powder. The protein bars come in cocoa or peanut butter and jelly.

The founders of the company believe that food made of insects could help address the demands of the world’s growing population.

Most people who learn about the ingredients of the bar, are not bothered by the use of insects. The bars contain about 290 calories and 10 grams of protein.
