Cockroach milk is the latest health fad taking over the world

However, given the small size of cockroaches, it might take a lot of these insects for extracting one glass of milk.
Cockroaches produce the crystals which are full of essential amino acids. Though, it is not the only hurdle for cockroach milk.
Even as some companies are developing the milk alternative, scientists aren't 100 percent sure yet whether the cockroach product is toxic to humans.
The milk, which is a "post-natal fluid" secreted by a mother cockroach to nourish her 50-something strong army of baby cockroaches, has been touted as an excellent source of nutrition and amino acids by researchers from the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine in India. And however grim cockroaches may be, it hardly sounds like the most ethical drink.
Are you ready to trade in your cow, almond or soya milk for some cockroach milk?
South African company Gourmet Grubb reportedly sells Entomilk, a milk that comes from sustainably farmed insects.
Superfoods are those which provide all the nutrients to prevent diseases and boost health.
Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, foods like avocados, blueberries, and wheatgrass fall into a category known as superfoods. But, there's absolutely no scientific basis or basic regulation for what could be deemed as a superfood.
But at the end of the day, the biggest obstacle in the face of widespread cockroach milk adoption is convincing people that it's not a gross thing (provided scientists prove it's safe).
Hence, you can still wait before you start dreading the onset of insect milk flooding the markets.
It turns out cockroaches on Pacific Islands like Hawaii are filled with a milk-like substance that crystallizes in the gut, before being used to feed their young. Some researchers are now experimenting with genetically modified yeast - which is far easier to grow and harvest - to produce the same milk as beetle roaches. Also, the roaches are killed during the milking process raising questions about how feasible the process would be on a large scale.
Unfortunately for health nuts, the actual process of obtaining this milk is extremely hard. So what might be a superfood to insects, might not be for humans.
