"New research from Frontiers in Nutrition came out that looked at the antioxidant capacity in edible insects compared to orange juice and olive oil. 
Antioxidants, at least from research conducted in the lab, are the chemical molecules that help protect cells in the body by reducing and removing free radicals from damaging those cells.
The exciting results found that crickets, grasshoppers, and silkworms all contained 5X the antioxidant capacity compared to orange juice."
