Scientists Think Cockroach Milk is the Next Superfood

Are you willing to trade your kale and quinoa for cockroach milk?

What’s more nutritious than cow milk and healthier than kale and quinoa?

Apparently, it’s cockroach milk.

Not just any cockroach milk, though, but that produced by the only known cockroach species to ever give birth to live young – Diploptera punctata.

Scientists from India’s Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine have isolated protein crystals from the cockroach’s midgut. The proteins contained three times the amount of energy found in the same amount of buffalo milk.

In order to determine the contents of the cockroach milk, the researchers decided to sequence the milk protein. According to Sanchari Banerjee:

“The crystals are like a complete food – they have proteins, fats, and sugars. If you look into the protein sequences, they have all the essential amino acids.”

The team is now currently hoping they can mass-produce the protein crystal in yeast to make it more economical and less icky (for consumers, that is).

This finding may not be advisable for those who are trying to lose weight, but for those who are trying to load up on calories and nutrients, then this cockroach milk may just be for you. But then, would you be willing to try it?
