This project began when the Science Park, KKU conducted a survey and evaluated the community needs. It was found that the Insect Enterprise Group of Chumphae Distruct, Khon Kaen, had been working on cricket farming and manufacturing certain product from Chumphae Thapthim Rice. This kind of rice is red in color like pomegranate and also contains high quantity of antioxidants, namely, phenolic and flavonoids. The group wanted to make their existing raw material into a new product, the cricket-powdered protein noodle from Chumphae Thapthim rice flour. The Science Park therefore contacted specialized researchers for the group. The researchers transferred the required technologies and manufacturing process to the Insect Enterprise Group. The group was assisted through the development of protein noodles until the noodles had the satisfactory texture and do not tear apart easily. The noodles add to the nutritious value to the consumers, especially those with celiac disease. The outcome of this project assists the community enterprise to have its own appropriate manufacturing formula with high standard. It also builds opportunities to expand the market of health food, leading to increase of incomes and employment and in the long-run self- dependency and sustainability.
