The Next Superfood May Be Cockroach Milk

(Refinery29) The milk produced by a certain species of cockroach may be four times more nutritious than cow's milk, according to a new study…
But if the thought of cockroach milk hitting grocery store shelves one day makes you gag, don't panic just yet — if that ever happens, it'll probably be cockroach-inspired milk. Since it's really the protein crystals present in the roaches' milk that make it so nutritious, researchers can replicate the stuff in a lab instead of developing the tiny technology necessary to milk a bunch of cockroaches.
Until that time comes, just relax and remember that other forms of insect-based protein already exist. Yum.
