Ento, a Malaysian company that specialises in insect-based foods, has officially announced its new Entomeat is now available on GrabFood, FoodPanda and AirAsiaFood.
The new cricket-based meat-less options comprise four products:
- Ento Meatball Bolognese
- Entomeat Burger
- Swedish Style Ento Meatball
- Entomeat Hot Dog
Ento Meatball Bolognese consists of juicy cricket meatballs smoothered in rich tomato-based sauce served with classic al dante spaghetti.
The Swedish Style Ento Meatballs with mushroom gravy are served with creamy mashed potatoes & boiled peas, with a side of sweet cranberry sauce.
The Entomeat Hot Dog consists of butter seared entomeat sausage in a bed of soft roll and topped with crunchy onions, pickles & mustard ketchup.
Entomeat Burger is described as an umami-packed cricket patty paired with sweet-spicy honey mustard and ketchup layered with fresh tomatoes, onions, lettuce and cheddar cheese.
Ento is taking on the other plant-based players with an insect twist. By turning them into a meal, this could pave the way for more opportunities for trial and acceptance. The next step would be to sell them as a take-home pack in the form of a cooking ingredient for in-home consumption.
Ento edible snack foods are available for purchase on Shopee.
