Is Cockroach Milk The New Superfood?

LOS ANGELES, CA - If you're squeamish, look away. If you're into alternative superfoods that could revolutionize nutrition- still proceed with caution. A team of scientists from India, Japan, Canada, and the U.S., just published their incredible discovery about cockroach milk in the journal of the International Union of Crystallography.


A protein crystal analyzed in the milk of the Pacific Beetle Cockroach has the potential to be a fantastic supplement for humans. According to the researchers, it’s three times as nutritious as cow's milk, providing more energy over a longer period of time because it's a "time-released" food. The crystals are like a “complete” food containing proteins, fats, and sugars. They’re also very stable and have all the essential amino acids.


A few things to keep in mind if you're asking “WHY?” Remember that there are people all over the world who are hungry and undernourished. A nutrient-rich, high-calorie alternative beverage could change their lives.

Secondly, there's no need to freak out- No actual cockroaches would be involved in the eventual production of the protein supplement. Now that scientists have discovered the gene sequence for the proteins, they hope to replicate them en masse, in the lab, not on a tiny cockroach farm. Because those only exist in our nightmares.
