The scientists concluded that cockroach milk possesses more essential amino acids, nutrients, and proteins than any other milk, including cow's milk.

There are a couple of hurdles before this can happen.

According to the before-mentioned study, the Pacific beetle cockroach is the best source for this milky substance that surpasses the regular milk in terms of nutritional value. Firstly, scientists need to prove that cockroach milk is safe for human consumption, something which studies in the future will address.

In this age of increasingly out-of-the-box superfood crazes, it's not that far-fetched to believe that cockroach milk will eventually be accepted as a supermarket staple.
