Cockroach Milk


How far will you go for muscle growth? If a substance is safe and legal, does that mean it’s fair game? If so, you might want to crack open a bottle of cockroach milk. Scientists at India’s Institute For Stem Cell Biology And Regenerative Medicine looked into whether milk protein found in the gut of the Pacific beetle cockroach—a bug that gives birth to live babies instead of laying eggs—resembles milk from a human or cow. They found that cockroach milk had more calories and the same amount of complete protein as buffalo milk, considered to be the most nutrient-dense milk. It also has a mechanism for controlled nutrient release. While harvesting this milk would be a nearly impossible task, scientists are looking into synthesizing it as a sustainable superfood with a low carbon footprint. Get ready to pour yourself a big glass of Bug Gainz.
