Crowdfunding Spotlight: Oregon Company Launches Gourmet Salt on Kickstarter Made With Crickets

 

Company Crafts New Kickstarter for World Edible Insect Day on Oct. 23

Of the company's recent release of the new finishing salt, Cricket Flours CEO Charles Wilson said, "Launching for World Edible Insect Day and shipping in time for the holidays is the perfect opportunity for our company. Since founding the company, we continue to craft products and recipes that can be shared with friends and the whole family. 3 years ago we had a pretty niche following in the entomophagy space; today we work with thousands of families, chefs, restaurants, schools, and museums and this is one more way for someone to try insects in their favorite dishes or as a gift we know they won't have for the holidays."

To launch their latest Kickstarter project, Cricket Flours planned and performed the following:

  • After raising $25K from over 325+ backers, Cricket Flours worked directly with chefs and families to craft their handcrafted gourmet salt that can be used throughout the kitchen and recipes.
  • By using recipes from Cricket Flours published "Cricket Flour Cookbook: All Cricket, No BULL…" they were able to focus on a product that could be used to enhance any dish for people to try insects for the first time and in new ways.
  • Continuing to develop new flavor ideas for the Cricket Salt, Cricket Flours' additional stretch goals on Kickstarter are available once the $3,500 goal is reached to unlock more flavor and spice combinations with salts sourced from around the world.

About Cricket Flours LLC: Cricket Flours LLC is an edible insect company based in Portland, Oregon. Founded in 2014, Cricket Flours crafts food products such as their roasted and flavored crickets, pure cricket powder, cricket brownie mixes, and are made with crickets raised in North America for specifically human consumption.  A member of the Portland Starveups group, Cricket Flours was the winner of the Stu Clark Investment Challenge in 2015, and partnered to win the Oregon Best Clean Tech Challenge in 2016.

Innovation Spotlight: Herb & Body Introduces SMALT – The World’s First Interactive Centerpiece and Smart Salt Dispenser

 

 

Designed to Enhance Any Dining Experience, SMALT Creates Great Ambiance with Built-In Mood-Lighting and a Bluetooth Speaker to Play Music; Indiegogo Campaign Launches Today to Fund Product's Development

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Herb & Body today introduced SMALT, the world's first interactive centerpiece and smart salt dispenser designed to enhance the dining experience.  With its stylish design, built-in mood-lighting and a Bluetooth speaker to play music, SMALT helps set the perfect ambiance - anywhere, anytime. SMALT, as a smart dispenser, dispenses measured amounts of salt either manually or via "shake," "pinch" or "pour" gestures using its companion app for IOS and Android.  Users can also dispense salt via Amazon Alexa integration, making it the perfect tool for those monitoring their salt consumption.  The Indiegogo campaign (https://igg.me/at/mysmalt), which has a funding goal of $25,000 USD, features limited Early Bird specials of $99 USD (50% off retail) and several other rewards for early backers.

With SMALT, consumers have two ways to control its powerful color-changing mood light and amazing sound - either directly from the device's interactive interface/LCD screen, or via the SMALT companion app, making it a unique, all-in-one interactive centerpiece.  SMALT comes with rechargeable batteries that last up to four hours and features Bluetooth 4.0 technology to allow users to easily stream their favorite music - both indoors and outdoors. Ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in one hand, SMALT is easily portable, offering on-the-go ambiance no matter where users dine.

SMALT's metering mechanism allows users to easily dispense the desired amount of salt with a simple press of a button, placing the exact amount in a small, removable tray at the bottom of the device. Using the companion app, users can also make intuitive hand gestures with their smartphone to dispense salt, from shaking their phone to shake salt out of SMALT, to pinching the screen of their phone to dispense a pinch of salt. When paired with Alexa, consumers can use simple voice commands like, "Alexa dispense half a teaspoon of salt." With one in three Americans having high blood pressure, SMALT offers an easy and fun way to monitor and control salt consumption, helping consumers to maintain a healthy heart.

"One of the most basic human needs is the need for belongingness. For centuries, one of the ways we have fulfilled this need is by gathering around the dinner table, a place where we connect, appreciate and feel appreciated," said Bipan Singh, founder, Herb and Body. "SMALT is our effort to further enhance this experience - all with the important benefit of watching your salt intake."

Food Spotlight: San Francisco Salt Co. Glass Shaker – Cyprus Flake Salt

 

 

Glass Shaker - Cyprus Flake Salt

Origin: Cyprus
Description: Natural, pyramid-shaped crystal flake salt from Cyprus.
Packaging: Glass Shaker
Net Weight: 2oz
Grain Size: Natural Flake
Properties: 100% Natural, Kosher, pyramid-shape crystal flake, bright white
Ingredients: Pure Cyprus Sea Salt
Shelf Life: 10 years
Uses: Gourmet Food Salt, culinary

 

Cyprus Flake Salt
Natural crystal flake sea salt from the Mediterranean Sea surrounding the island of Cyprus. This stunning and delicate gourmet flake salt provides a delightful crunch with the mild flavor of Mediterranean Salts making it ideal for use in cooking, baking and as a garnishing salt for fish and vegetable dishes.

Using a method that can take up to two years from start to finish in order to obtain its perfection, the unique pyramid shape of the Cyprus Flake Salt is created through the process of solar evaporation of sea water where the water is channeled into a chain of shallow ponds or lagoons called "salins" and then into large pans where the water is gradually heated, forming the dazzling pyramid shapes of the salt. The process continues until the salt reaches 3% humidity.

Food Spotlight: San Francisco Salt Co. Whiskey Smoked Irish Sea Salt

 

 

Chef's Jar - Whiskey Smoked Irish Salt

Origin: Ireland
Description: Aged Teeling Whiskey oak kegs infused into Oriel Irish Mineral Sea Salt, delivering a powerful and smoky, delicious flavor.
Packaging: Glass Chef's Jar with wooden spoon
Grain Size: Extra Fine (preferred choice for sprinkling on food/cooking).

Whiskey Smoked Irish Salt
The creation of Whiskey Smoked Irish Salt takes place when aged Teeling Whiskey oak kegs are smoked within hours of being emptied. This process ensures they retain their rich whiskey and oak aroma, which is then subtlety infused into Oriel Irish Mineral Sea Salt. Oriel salt is renowned for being rich in trace minerals and embodying a powerful taste that allows chefs to use less salt with the same kick. Once smoked, it delivers a powerful and smoky delicious flavor.

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Omnivore Limone – for seafood, poultry and vegetables!

 

 

My name is Angelo, and I'm the founder of Omnivore!

At the end of 2013, thanks to the support of thousands of Kickstarter contributors, we were able to fund our company, and launch our first product, Omnivore Salt, a versatile spiced salt blend defined by Alice Waters as "indispensable". Within a few months, we shared with you Sicilia a unique condiment sauce, handcrafted and locally made in micro-batches.

 

 

 

 

At Omnivore, our mission is to inspire a change in production practices and a new relationship with food. We are reaching a new awareness about our food supply, but many of the choices in the market are still produced in large-scale, using highly processed ingredients to prioritize profit over quality.

We create nutrient-packed cooking products, only crafted in small batches to ensure the best flavor and the highest quality. Our ingredients are 100% organic, and when possible, locally sourced—we are inspired by our grandmothers' sensitivity and respect for nature's bounty, not by food trends.

We believe that cooking should be rewarding and simple—all our blends will enhance the natural flavors of your ingredients, and are easy to use across any type of cuisine.

Cooking is an act of love, and we want to inspire you to do more of it.

 

 

 

 

It is time to grow and connect with more of you!

Thanks to the enthusiastic support of our Kickstarters backers and many loyal customers,Omnivore Salt and Sicilia are available online and in a small network of specialty stores. But our aspirations are greater! We want to grow our company, and share our products and message with a larger audience. We proudly have never accepted funding from outside investors. The success of this campaign means we get to continue growing on our terms!

For months, we've been experimenting with new blends, testing them in hundreds of recipes, and adjusting each ingredient until the balance was perfect. Now we are ready to present the first of a new series of artisanal seasonings, OMNIVORE LIMONE, a zesty and herbal salt blend that will bring out the best flavors of seafood and poultry!

 

 

Why Limone?

Limone is inspired by my heritage, and is a tribute to one of the most versatile ingredients in Mediterranean cuisine, the lemon.

I grew up on a citrus grove in Sicily, living by the seasons, cooking, pickling, hunting, and preserving. The women of my family passed down recipes from generation to generation. They taught me the value of timeless quality and great flavors—how to create simple seasonings that do not compete with food, but rather improve it.

While foraging as a child, I learned the wonder of herbs—when mixed with salt, they give character to your food and make your cooking simple!

 

 

Meet the new Omnivore Limone!

 

 

Limone is a mix of of locally harvested natural sea salt and lemon zest, dill, ginger, parsley, garlic, fennel and black pepper.

Enhancing the most subtle flavors of seafood and poultry, Omnivore Limone creates a delicate and unique experience for the palate.

It is made using only 100% organic, GMO FREEOU Kosher, SQF and HACCP Certified herbs and spices. More than 50% of our ingredients are Fair Trade Certified and our salt is pure—NO flowing agents, minerals or anti-cacking agents are added.
