We truly are living in the age of the successful and innovative future. In this shocking article written in the Daily Mail by writer Lauren Ingram, it has been discovered by scientists that the next big superfood is cockroach milk because it contains a special distinct protein and is extremely nutritious.
The scientists who discovered the power of cockroach milk were working at the Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, an institute based in India. Through extensive research, they found out that the milk is four times healthier than cow’s milk.
The milk also contains a unique form of protein that makes it all the more healthier for the human population. Besides this, the protein releases energy very slowly over time. It is a high calorie food that can sustain human beings for a long period of time, making it much healthier.
The strange milk was produced by the Pacific Beetle Cockroach, the only type of cockroach that gives birth to live offspring. The cockroach secretes a type of milk that contains protein crystals to feed its embryos before they are born.
‘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,’ author of the study, Sanchari Banerjee, told Times of India.
‘It’s time-released food. If you need food that is calorifically high, that is time released and food that is complete. This is it,’ another scientist, Professor Ramaswamy explained.
Scientists who made the discovery were working at the Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, and believe the milk could be used as a protein supplement in the future.
So, how do you milk a cockroach?
The milk takes the form of crystals which are currently extracted from the midgut of cockroach embryos. This is perhaps not the most efficient way of feeding a growing world population and researchers are hoping to reverse bioengineer cockroach milk.
While, transforming the crystals into edible milk is still a long way off into the future, at the end of the day, the obvious remaining question is, would you drink the cockroach milk? I’m not so sure about this myself.
