Product Description

Freeze Dried Green Tree Ants (Oecophylla smaragdina)

  • 10gm freeze dried = 40gm fresh
  • 25gm freeze dried = 100 gm fresh

Green Tree ants are taking the culinary world by storm with their incomparably bold and distinctive  citrusy-sherbet-bomb taste.

Add to chocolate, dukkah, jams, gins, marmalade – let your imagination run wild

Green Tree Ants are wild caught (easier than it sounds!), hand-sorted to remove leaf nest debris and silk, frozen and then freeze dried. The freeze-dried ants have a unique citrusy, tangy and slightly spicy flavour and are highly nutritious, containing ~% 50 crude protein.

The freeze-drying process removes ~ 98% of the water content of the ants and is ideal for retaining their flavour, nutritional content, and shape. 

Freeze-dried Green Tree Ants are easily rehydrated in warm water and quickly regain a similar appearance to freshly caught ants.
