Many bakers experiment with their bread, adding extras like seeds, nuts and olives. But this Finnish bakery has added one ingredient with a bit more bite - crickets. SOUNDBITE (English) MARKUS HELLSTRÖM, CEO OF FAZER BAKERY FINLAND, SAYING: "The crickets are in the form of flour and they have been ground as a whole cricket and then made into dough and then baked to a very delicious product which we are about to see." Each loaf contains about 70 crickets and costs about 1 euro more than a regular wheat loaf. It also has more protein thanks to the insects. At the launch in Helsinki, most people were happy to give it a go. SOUNDBITE (English) SARA KOIVISTO STUDENT FROM HELSINKI, SAYING: "It tastes like bread. It's really good....I don't know!" Finland is among 6 European countries that allow insects to be raised for food. While common in much of the world, insect-eating is still largely taboo in the West. But a demand to find more sustainable food sources and a desire to treat animals more humanely is helping insects' reputation as a valuable source of protein.
