The Latest Superfood Trend Is Cockroach Milk

Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, foods like avocados, blueberries, and wheatgrass fall into a category known as superfoods. Discovery of the health benefits from the cockroach milk goes back as far as two years.

Cockroach milk, the post-natal fluid of a certain breed of roach, could become the latest non-dairy milk alternative.

Milk found from the Australian native Pacific beetle cockroach was found to contain protein sequences with all the essential amino acids, plus proteins, fats, and sugars and three times the energy of dairy milk, the 2016 study found.

While some health food fanatics may be tempted, trying to milk a common household cockroach will not produce any of this nourishing superfood.

Asked about his next steps he said: "I plan to get some decent sleep, maybe get drunk, and then wake up in two or three days". Russia's foreign ministry condemned the staged murder, calling it "obviously yet another anti-Russian provocation".

Per a CBS News report, this particular cockroach gives birth to live young, unlike other species that lay eggs.

The study, published in the Journal of the International Union of Crystallography, also found that the milk-like superfood was full of amino acids and sugar-coated proteins, making it a natural gold mine for humans.

However, even Ramaswamy himself is somewhat sceptical as to whether it will take off, stating "I don't think anyone is going to like it if you tell them, 'We extracted crystals from a cockroach and that is going to be food, '" so maybe we should just stick to more conventional dairy for now.

Touting the many health benefits of eating bugs, Gourmet Grubb has come up with a food product called Entomilk. The company describes it as a non-dairy milk alternative made from insects.

Cockroaches have a reputation for being one of the hardiest creatures on the planet.

According to National Public Radio in the United States, one of Mr Banerjee's colleagues tried the milk and it tasted no different from cow's milk.

It seems we might not be glugging the stuff anytime soon though as the process of extracting the "milk" actually kills the cockroaches.
