Testimonials

Janelle Wade Headshot

Cricket Complex is the most filling protein I’ve ever tried (and it’s not easy to keep a bodybuilder full!) It blends well with water, milk, almond milk, and even coffee. Plus, it tastes great and I don’t have any of the digestive issues common with other protein powders.

Lithic uses crickets to bring a highly sustainable protein to the table in an approachable, delicious way. I’m a big fan of Cricket Complex, and proud to support their mission! It’s time we join the rest of the world and get over the “eww bugs” bias, and help out our ecosystem.

What’s not to love about Lithic bars? A complete protein with enough in each bar for ample recovery, combined with ingredients that are low sensitivity, endlessly sustainable, and they taste freakin’ great without the typical, chalky protein bar texture.

Just Like Dave

Embraced Adventure

in his time with the Marines,
we're inviting you to

Embrace Adventure

In Food

Dave first encountered insects as food while deployed with the marines in southeast Asia. After learning about their cultural acceptance worldwide, plus their nutrition and sustainability traits, he brought the concept back to his twin brother, Lars in Denver, CO, and Lithic was born. They went all in to start their adventure with Lithic and are on a mission to radically change the way we as Americans think about protein!
