Altimate Nutrition is Singapore‚Äôs first company to create insect food products for humans. Through extensive R&D and proprietary food technologies, Altimate Nutrition converts extracted cricket flour to food products that are tasty, nutritious, and sustainable. In doing so, Altimate Nutrition aims to alleviate key social issues like food insecurity, climate change, and hunger. Insect protein is the sustainable protein of the future as they require significantly fewer bio-resources like up to 2000x less water to produce the same amount of protein as high-end beef. They are also nutritious in a myriad of nutrients like protein, vitamin B12, and iron. Therefore, Altimate Nutrition aims to harness the benefits of cricket farming to bring the protein of the future to the world today.
