In many developing countries, staple diets are plant-based thus consumptions of animal products are low. This consumption behavior has also happened to vegans in Western populations. As a result, dietary deficiencies in protein, Fe, and Zn are globally widespread. Moreover, there is less range of convenient vegans food available in the market. Most of the vegans food need to be prepared first before consumption means less convenient. In contrary, nowadays the convenient food tends low in nutrient but high in fat and animal-based, those are unhealthy options for vegans.
Enakke is high-protein food made from moringa leaves and cricket. It has crispy textures like chips with a variety of flavors such as chicken-onion, ham & cheese, and Japanese curry. Enakke is a ready-to-eat and simply served by sprinkle on top of the staple-food such as rice/bread/mashed-potato. In this way, Enakke provides protein, texture, and flavor to the food. It is high in Fe and Zn due to the cricket and moringa leaves nutritional content. Moreover, this is also a new variety of protein-food for vegans to be consumed since it is different in texture and shape with nowadays vegan food products (falafel, meat analogs, insect burger, etc).
