Crik Nutrition - Vanilla Protein Powder made from Crickets

WINNIPEG, June 3, 2015 /CNW/ - Entrepreneur and fitness enthusiast Alex Drysdale is looking to take his crowdfunding campaign to the next level with an innovative product line for both your health and our environment. – Crik Nutrition (

Crik Nutrition's main ingredient is crickets, which are extremely nutritious and sustainable compared to other protein sources such as livestock.

Drysdale knows that with the right product, the time is right to bring this valuable protein source to the mainstream and couldn't be happier with the amazing feedback he's received from every taste test.

Alex notes he is further motivated to ensure the success of Crik Nutrition, as the Drysdale family farm - located in Stony Mountain, Manitoba - is currently in jeopardy of being sold. With almost 80 years in the family, he wants to ensure his family farming legacy lives on. He's hoping to grow Crik Nutrition fast enough to be able to purchase the property before it's purchased by developers.

Crik Protein, is the ONLY protein powder on the planet with crickets, and the only cricket based product that has them as the #1 ingredient.

Crickets outrank beef in nutrition and sustainability.

This nutritionally dense supplement also includes pea protein, brown rice protein, hemp protein, flax and vanilla for flavor. Sweetened with stevia and monk fruit, it is delicious.

To date, the funding campaign has reached its goal and shown strong proof of concept. The further funding to hit the stretch goal will allow Crik Nutrition to fully fund the first order with pre-sales and develop a chocolate flavor.

Crik Protein will be sold online through the website by Fall 2015 and is available now on Indiegogo: - /story

"This product is about being healthy for the individual consumer and equally as important at being healthy for the environment," says Drysdale who is on a mission to bring a healthy alternative to the masses.
