Chapulines Chapulines

CRUNCHY CRITTERS Lemon Chapulines is an extremely tasty, exotic snack that contains ready-to-eat, dried insects - Chapulines, seasoned with lemons.

Chapulines is the Mexican name for edible insects, relatives of crickets or grasshoppers and are commonly used as an important ingredient in the local cuisine. They include mainly species belonging to the Pyrgomorphidae family and locusts (Acrididae). The insects are collected only at certain times of the year - from hatching in early May to late summer/early autumn. After thorough washing, they are baked on a wide flat dish with chili, garlic, lime juice, agave extract and salt. The finished product has an original sour-spicy-salty flavour.

High nutritional value
Insects belonging to the Orthopteran order, particularly all the edible varieties, including those from this product, are a healthy alternative to the commonly eaten kinds of meat, such as chicken, pork, beef and even fish.

They are a rich source of easily digestible and wholesome protein that contains all the essential amino acids, and unsaturated fatty acids, which cannot be synthesized by the human body and should be delivered with food.

When it comes to minerals, edible crickets contain almost five times as much magnesium and three times as much iron as beef. In addition, they provide more calcium than milk and are rich in zinc.

Chitin, an insect exoskeleton, also demonstrates valuable nutritional properties. By providing food for probiotic intestinal bacteria, it affects the correct composition of microorganisms that colonize the digestive tract.

New flavours and culinary experiences
Edible insects are not only an excellent nutritional value, but also a new culinary experience and an excellent enrichment of traditional menu basic flavours and textures.

Environmental protection and rational resource management
Environmental protection and rational resource management is a very important aspect for many consumers when it comes to the personal food choices. Insect consumption compared to the consumption of meat from farmed animals is associated with the reduction of both: the greenhouse gas emissions and ammonia. Insect-keeping does not require land development in order to increase the production. Insects are also very efficient when it comes to the production of foods with high nutritional density. To produce the same amount of protein as the livestock, much less forage is needed, and even organic waste can be used for this purpose.

Crunchy Critters Lemon Chapulines is a product that can be an independent healthy snack, but also an interesting addition to many dishes such as pizza or pasta or rice based dishes. In addition, the product is rich in protein and dietary fiber, and also contains a small amount of unhealthy fats and simple sugars.

Energy value

Information

The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents energy., determining the value of metabolic energy contained in 1 g of the component. Most commonly used is the equivalent of Atwater: protein 4 kcal/g for carbohydrates 4kcal/g, and for fat 9kcal/g.


 

Fat

Information

Fat is an essential nutrient plant and animal organisms. Because of the nutritional value and composition of fats are divided into: saturated (mono-saturated and multi-saturated fatty acids) and unsaturated fatty acids (including essential fatty acids - EFA). The group of lipids include lipids (triacylglycerols, waxes), complex fats (glycolipids, phospholipids), sterols and isoprenoids. Saturated fatty acids is a group of fatty acids having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is bound by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Fats are a concentrated source of energy, with different flavours, facilitating the consumption and swallowing of food. They have building functions (part of cell membranes and co-create the white matter of the brain). EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. The unsaturated fatty acids include fatty acids from the group Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 (the last digit indicates, on which, counting of the end of the chain, there is a double bond in the appropriate carbon chain. The essential fatty acids include: acids, medium-Omega-3 [n-3 ] included in EFAs [essential fatty acids], and long chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) Omega-6 and Omega-9. the number indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is on the third from the end carbon atom. The acids from the omega 3 group are essential components of cell membranes, they are precursors of eicosanoids and biological activators. They must be combined with ingestion in suitable proportions of Omega-6 acids.
Dosage: Depending on demand and applied diet. It is generally accepted that fats should constitute 20-30% of the energy (calorie) of meals daily.


 

Saturated fatty acids

Information

Saturated fatty acids are a group of fatty acid having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is linked by a single bond. Saturated fatty acids are commonly known as bad fat, which might adversely affect the cholesterol level, in particular by the action of acids: lauric, myristic, palmitic, and therefore their consumption should be reduced. Research carried out in this matter do not confirm entirely the prevailing beliefs.


 

Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA)

Information

Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) - monoenoic fatty acid, contrary to PUFA - polyenoic fatty acid - may be synthesized in the human organism. Therefore, they are less popular in supplementation, although current research on their properties prove, that they are unfairly skipped.

The main pro-heath application of monounsaturated fatty acids MUFA is prophylaxis of cardiovascular diseases. They may optimize lipid profile, increase the amount of lipoprotein HDL, at the same time decreasing the amount of “bad” cholesterol LDL. Oleic acid, present in olive oil, belonging to MUFA, is attributed the properties of Mediterranean diet, considered the best for our circulatory system.

Some sources also say that monoenoic monounsaturated fatty acids are conducive to weight loss. Therefore, increasing their supply in a diet is recommended to people dealing with excess weight.

Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs)

Information

Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) –  contain at least two double bonds in their structure. They are most frequently divided into two subgroups: omega 3 and 6. PUFAs belong to essential unsaturated fatty acids – the body cannot synthesise them endogenously and they must be supplied with food. Their biological activity in the body consists in its role as a precursor to various eicosanoids.

PUFAs promote mainly cardiovascular health.  They are an effective preventive measure against cardiovascular diseases. They inhibit blood platelet aggregation, may lower blood pressure and triglyceride levels.

Proper intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids is also of key importance to maintain a healthy brain. PUFAs promote normal development of the nervous system and its healthy function, thereby influencing beneficially cognitive functions. Their adequate consumption is believed to delay ageing processes.

Supplementation with PUFAs is recommended to individuals on a slimming diet because they help control body mass. What is more, they may prevent the development of cancer. Deficiencies in polyunsaturated fatty acids in a diet may also promote immunodeficiency.

Carbohydrates

Information

Carbohydrates are an essential nutrient. They are divided into: simple sugars (monosaccharides), disaccharides and polysaccharides. In terms of the human bioavailability of carbohydrates is divided into: digestabe, those which are digested in the gastrointestinal tract by transferring energy to the tissues or cells (such as starch, fructose) and indigestable, resistant to digestive enzymes (e.g. cellulose) . Affects blood glucose levels (glycemic index) and the metabolism of insulin (insulin index). The greatest demand for carbohydrates occurs before physical activity or in the middle of it, because they increase the exercise capacity, consumed after exercise provide regeneration. In the sports diet the absorption rate it is important of carbohydrates and reactions of the organism. Available in mono-preparation supplements and part of the energetic supplements, creatine stacks, nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: according to the statistics of the Institute of Food and Nutrition, carbohydrates should comprise about 50% of daily energy intake. In some diets, used
residual carbohydrate consumption, not exceeding 30g / 24h.


 

Sugars

Information

Sugars - is the term used to refer to the crystal structure of the carbohydrate (sugar), characterized by a sweet taste. This group includes: sucrose (obtained from sugar cane and sugar beets and natural foods), fruit sugars (fructose) and glucose. Carbohydrate intake should not exceed 10% of the energy consumed during the day meals. Excess intake of sugars leading to diseases, including diabetes, atherosclerosis and obesity. Particular caution should be performed carbohydrate intake by athletes of sculpting disciplines and people on a diet. A greater need for carbohydrates, due being easily accessible sources of energy, may be in the periods before and after workouts and before and after the fight. Preparations available at www.muscle-zone.pl

Dietary fibre

Information

Dietary fibre is a mixture of undigested substances and not absorbed by the human body. Due to the properties divided into: insoluble fibre (e.g. cellulose [polysaccharide] found in fruits and vegetables), partially soluble fibre (including hemicellulose occurring with cereal grains and soluble fibre (including pectin, gums, mucilages [polysaccharides]). Dietary fibre affects the digestive system and gastrointestinal system regulating its operation. By filling the stomach (satiety) reduces appetite, lowers triglycerides and cholesterol and consequently can support the weight loss process and maintain a slim body. It also affects blood glucose levels and cleansing the body of toxins. Available in powder formulations (capsules, and powders), mainly containing the soluble fraction (pectin, gums and mucilages) diet and meal replacements.
Dosage: 10-20 grams per day, before or during meals with some water.


 

Protein

Information

Proteins (proteins, polypeptides) is a polymer, of which the basic units (monomers) are amino acids. Protein is composed of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and sulfur, and is an elementary nutrient necessary for the proper functioning of the body, an ingredient and a component of tissues, part of the hormones and enzymes and other bioactive substances. Protein determines the proper metabolism and energy processes, as well as all other life processes. The sources of natural proteins are foods of animal origin (including meat, fish, eggs, dairy products) and plant origin (legumes, soy). Deficiency of protein leads to protein malnutrition and a significant weakening of the body. It can lead to anaemia, reduced immunity, muscle relaxation, disorders of the digestive system. Also, overdose protein is undesirable because it can lead to acidification of the body, and interfere with the digestive system and an increase in the concentration of homocysteine ​​in the blood. It is a component of many supplements and nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of the body, both showing a low physical activity, or training the strength and endurance competitions.
Dosage: strength athletes: approx. 1.7 - 2.5 g / 1 kg of body weight; endurance athletes and strength -endurance athletes approx. 1.3 - 2 g / 1 kg of body weight, people with low activity approx. 0.8 - 1.1 g / 1 kg of body weight / 24h. In estimating the amount of protein, you should take into account the intake of other nutrients (carbohydrates and fats)


 

Salt

Information

Salt (sodium chloride, or table salt), natural source of electrolytes (chlorine and potassium), regulating water and electrolyte and acid-base balance of the body, affecting the nervous system and blood pressure. Sodium is an essential element for the proper growth. The proper dose of salt prevents overheating of the body and solar stroke. It provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves the body. Chlorine in combination with sodium, is involved in the digestive process and maintains acid-base balance in the body, as antitoxin removes toxic products of metabolism in the liver. Salt is a flavour component and preservative of many foods, nutritional supplements and mixtures of electrolytes, available at www.muscle-zone.pl

Dosage: no specific standards of consumption, used so as to provide sufficient amount of electrolytes to the body (sodium and chloride).
