Why cockroach milk is being hailed as the next big superfood
30 May, 2018, 09:11 | Author: Veronica Peterson
A research done by the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine in India claims that the "milk", produced by a specific type of roach called the "Pacific beetle cockroach" - which are found in Australia - is hugely rich in energy. There's no denying that it sounds absolutely disgusting, but suspend your disbelief for a moment and chew on this: A 2016 study of the substance found that not only is it sustainable, it also happens to be far more nutritious than dairy milk. Ugh. But as the creepy critters are tiny, it could take 1,000 cockroaches to make 100 grams of milk, science news website Inverse reported. Scientists only have a few days to work with, as mother cockroaches only begin lactating for their young at around 40 days old.
This particular kind of cockroach, which is usually found on Pacific islands like Hawaii, is the only known species that gives birth to their babies, as opposed to laying eggs.
A spokesman said: "The crystals are like a complete food - they have proteins, fats and sugars".
Perhaps now that it's 2018, people are more daring and willing to try this somewhat baffling milk alternative. South African based Gourmet Grubb already make ice cream from "entomilk", milk made from a variety of insects.
They said: "One of the most pivotal benefits of Entomilk is that it has a high protein content and is rich in mineral such as iron, zinc, and calcium".

The transaction on which the federal government and Kinder Morgan agreed upon on Tuesday is expected to close in August 2018. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau emphasized those differences in his first public comment since his government's announcement.
While some health food fanatics may be tempted, trying to milk a common household cockroach will not produce any of this nourishing superfood.
Nevertheless, several companies have jumped on the cockroach milk bandwagon in the wake of that promising 2016 report, hoping to cash in on what they believe will be the next big food trend.
Some scientists and cockroach milk producers admit that it may be hard to get people on the bandwagon, but that's not the only road block for cockroach milk.
No, but there are companies developing the milk alternative for human consumption.
