Is Cockroach Milk Back as a Superfood Trend?

Cockroach milk may be coming back as a 2018 superfood trend.                        MAU KAE HORNG

Now it is expected that cockroach milk will be soon added to the list of superfoods. Wait a second - don't roll your eyes just yet, because this is actually a serious possibility which researchers and some companies are investigating. Overall, it provides up to three times as much energy as the most nutritious dairy milk of the same mass.

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

This "milk" really comes from a Particular Kind of cockroach Which Can Be found in The milk-like material is exactly what the moms feed for their scientists and young of their research remarked the bronchial crystals seen in the milk are nearly complete food. That would be odd.

'The only way [to milk a cockroach] would be to make cultures of yeast with the genes in it for making this milk, ' said Barbara Stay, Ph.D. from the University of Iowa. They use the milk to feed their young. "If you look into the protein sequences, they have all the essential amino acids". One company out of South Africa, called Gourmet Grubb, is already selling bug milk ice cream which they see as a window into a bug-eating way of life. Their solution is called "entomilk", which is sourced from sustainably farmed insects.

"This is considered to be significantly more environmentally friendly than the traditional farming of dairy cows", it says on its website.

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. Roaches aren't the easiest creatures to milk, NPR reports. The taste itself isn't anything special, confided Subramanian Ramaswamy, one of the researchers, to the Washington Post.
