Bugs and insects are said to be the way of the future. Not only as a great source of protein but also environmentally, helping us to cut down our meat intake by munching on creepy crawlies instead.

Dave Harris, co-founder of Home St. bread by Bakeworks, has cashed in on this forward thinking by creating a bread using cricket flour. He says it's "an incredibly nutritious, high protein and sustainable ingredient to work with, so quite frankly - why wouldn't we use it in our bread?"
