Seems like you, me, and Greggers, were all thinking along the same lines! And almost at the same time!

As for cockroach "milk" uh, no thank you! I have tried cicadas and grasshoppers (in a nice red pepper/cayenne sprinkle) after they were toasted in a fire... not bad. Kind of tasted like roasted peanuts. Probably wouldn't be bad dipped in chocolate. But I will take mine ground up in fine powder distributed through the product please!

I think the "vertical garden" craze is going to start so not worried about the food supply. Instead of one large mill bulk producing food we will see more local suppliers. Each city will get there own little farmer market, local source, food. F Monsanto and RoundUp! Don't want fake franken-food anyway. Cockroaches can absorb a lot of toxins so maybe eating the things is not the best idea (same toxins would do a number on humans).

Lactose intolerance is often found in societies that did not come out of Europe, particularly NW Europe. Presumably NW European genetic culture evolved with the adoption of an agrarian society where cattle, sheep and goats predominated.

As to the OP. Cockroach milk is not really milk. You get milk from mammals and not from insects. The OP is about getting some white gut-fluid from a cockroach which is not milk, but may be white. There's a big difference. You don't call white paint "milk", or bubble bath foam "milk", so why call gut-fluid-extract from an insect "milk"?

On eating insects and insect products. No chance. Let others get their protein that way. I will stick to what I am used to.



Well I know it's not really milk! Jeez.... I don't think we should be eating animals except in cases of famine. We certainly don't need to eat bugs! Here you go... nutritionfacts.org...

I'll pass. Even if it's synthesized, I cannot separate the "milk" from the bug.

I really can't help how dumb this sounds but...

I can milk a cow, a goat, and maybe even a horse;

but how do you milk a cockroach??


It involves a boot, a pipette, and a small vessel. Very traumatic to the roach.

Reminds me of the movie Snowpiercer.

Well, it would all be synthetic, right?

It sounds like it probably won't be in liquid form? That would be hard to swallow, so to speak, as opposed to being added into a snack bar or cereal or something.

And expensive I bet. I'll stick with mangosteens for a superfood.

There is a growing market for bugs as protein source. They produce more protein using less resources than just about anything else. They are farmed, of course, rather than free range. lol.

"SAVE THE COCKROACH ... EAT THE RICH"

They already put things into our food that we're not aware of.

Also... people need to get off the 'meat, or in this case bugs, for protein wagon'! Spinach has more protein that red meat! The worlds largest, strongest and fiercest animals are vegan.

Gorillas are omnivores, just like their cousins.

Not all of them.
The ones that aren't primarily vegan eat some insects and birds eggs.

But enough of them do that the species is classified as omnivorous.

Not all of them are classified as omnivores. Just chimps because they eat insects.

Unlike other apes such as gorillas and orangutans which are almost entirely herbivorous (plant-eating), chimps are classified as omnivores. This means that, like humans, they eat a variety of plant and animal foods.

So if you eat 'termites and ants' does that make you a vegan?

And chimpanzees will eat more than insects. They have been known to be cannibals.
