  1. Hello, my name is Nick, and I was recently diagnosed with an intolerance to wheat gluten. Ingesting even the slightest bit of wheat gluten makes my stomach inflame, and my gag reflex is on a hair trigger for at least a couple hours thereafter. Changing my diet has actually been surprisingly easy, and I transitioned without missing a beat, really. Except for one issue; when I was diagnosed, I was in the process of phasing out conventional Western animal protein in lieu of insect protein. So, I was eating a lot of crickets, mealworms, waxworms, etc. After contacting my suppliers, I discovered that all of my insects are raised on oats and wheat, so I can no longer eat insects that are raised on such a diet, because unlike eating beef or chicken, when you eat a bug you eat everything, including it's stomach contents and what it was eating. So, I was curious to know if there's anyone on here who is like me, and knows where gluten-free raised insects can be purchased in North America, dead or alive. Short of raising them myself, I'm running out of ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated! -Nick
