    • No, cricket powder is not a 1:1 substitute for flour.  However, we have found that cricket powder is able to substitute a good portion of the flour in any recipe, lowering the carbohydrate levels and increasing the protein levels.  Our “go-to” percentage that we normally substitute is 20%.  So, for example, if you’re making a recipe that normally calls for 3 cups of flour, you would instead use, roughly 2 and a half cups of flour and a half cup of cricket powder.
