• Male Giant Waterbugs in retort pouch

Five ready-to-cook moist Male Giant Waterbugs in a bag. Male waterbugs contain a special essence that is used to create various Thai dishes and condiments. Water bug “essence,” it is in fact the pheromone that the male bug uses to attract females during mating season. They have a sweet floral aroma, some people say they smell similar to ripe pears. 

The water bug can be eaten whole and fried, and as an extract. The taste of the flight muscles is often compared to sweet scallops or shrimp. It is also used to make nam phrik malaeng Da, a type of chili sauce used as a condiment.

Our Waterbugs are raised on GAP certified farms in northeast Thailand. They are processed from fresh at our GMP/HACCP accredited factory and then packed into special retort pouches, and cooked under high heat and pressure to give them an extra long shelf-life, whilst retaining their original nutrients and aroma. This product can be stored at room temperature without the need for refrigeration for up to 18 months.
