Hello... it's me.
Eat me now or eat me later...
...just as long as you try me.
Sometimes the small things make the big changes: Edible insects are good for the environment, good for your karma and – yes – they taste amazing.
Our BUX BURGER is a delicious burger-patty made of 43 % ground lesser mealworms. It looks great, it tastes great and - when you eat enough of it - it even makes you look great.
Appealing texture with a mouth-watering flavour - simply bugelicious!
4 damn good reasons to eat the bux burger.
1. It is delicious
It is aromatic, crunchy on the outside, though luscious!
The Bugfoundation completely dedicates itself to taste, taste and… taste! The Bux Burger is a high-quality principle meal solution with great nutty flavour. 43% Buffalo worms (alphitobius diaperinus) and selected vegetarian ingredients form a clean label product without any artificial additives. BUT! We don’t want to jabber around. It’s for sure! If you want to get a real own impression of the unique Bux Burger taste, devour it all by yourself!
2. It is healthy
Boost your mineral mass balance! Insects generally contain highly valuable proteins and usually are dense in important micronutrients such as iron, zinc and B-vitamins. In the light of iron and zinc deficiencies even in highly developed countries, this is important. Compared to meat, insects have a more favorable fatty acids profile providing more mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids and less saturated fatty acids. For those reasons you won’t feel bloated, but rather well saturated after consuming the Bux Burger. Do yourself something positive!
3. It is eco friendly
The ecological footstep is more than convincing!
Insect rearing requires 10 times less feed than the equivalent amount of conventional beef and therefore reduces water and land usage drastically. They emit considerably less greenhouse gases – up to 100 times less than cattle – and also their water consumption is a minimum of what traditional livestock requires: Cows for example drink around 80 liters of water per day. On the contrary, insects are drought resistant and almost do not consume any water. No needs to regret!
4. It is ethical
Oh brother where art though?!
Most insects naturally live together in masses and feel comfortable all together. Where mass animal keeping is a critical issue for the consumer nowadays, this argument does not hold for worms as they can easily be bread species-appropriately. It is also supposed that insects feel no or at least less pain than mammals. Further, no antibiotics, hormones and other artificial and critical substances are needed and used to grow the insects for our Burger.
