MMMMM MMMMM.... forget conventional dairy, now we have cockroach milk. 3x the energy AND lactose free. Who wants a big glass of cockroach milk?

minnesota.cbslocal.com...





the benefits of insect dairy, scientists found that the Pacific Beetle cockroach of Hawaii possesses nutrient-filled milk crystals, which they use to feed their young. “A single crystal is estimated to contain more than three times the energy of an equivalent mass of dairy milk,” the report stated.

The study published in the Journal of the International Union of Crystallography also found that the milk-like superfood was full of amino acids and sugar-coated proteins, which makes this a natural gold mine for humans.

I'm sure it's super healthy. I wish I could get past the "ick factor". Use it for pet and animal food for now!

I grew up in the southeast US, which has some of the highest cockroach population densities in the planet. I honestly believe that there's no way I could overcome the psychological aversion.

I'd sooner drink my own piss.

I can just see the future, complete with super intelligent AI based cyborg humans running off of cockwretch milk.

I think Suckerberg is already on that steez.

Squshed like the red dye in your food. Like silkworms.

Carminic acid, typically 17-24% of dried insects' weight, can be extracted from the body and eggs, then mixed with aluminum or calcium salts to make carmine dye, also known as cochineal. Today, carmine is primarily used as a colorant in food and in lipstick

I would suppose that if you have starving children you would gladly give them any nutrient-rich food you could get. We have the chance to be picky still in the US as of yet may not forever.

Stay also found that she could extract the roach milk — in either liquid or crystal form — through a process she calls "milking a cockroach." "You substitute a filter paper in the brood sac for the embryos and you leave it there," she explains. After a while, "you take it out and you get the milk."Aug 6, 2016

Do you ever get the feeling some Mad Scientists are just getting together and saying
"What insanely stupid thing can we get people eating as a superfood?"

"How about Cockroaches?"

YEAH, that will work.

This is akin to the bets the millionaires were always making in the background in the movie Rat Race.

Ditto.

I suppose, in reality, it's not all that different from drinking cow's milk...aside from the "ick" factor. I won't be partaking anytime soon.

That's a "dairy" farm I'll never get within 50 miles of, preferably not even that close.

I like cows though... Bugs, on the other hand...not so much.

I'll readily admit that I have no basis for comparison of the two. And I like cow and goat milk. But I can also absolutely promise you that I will never establish that basis for comparison.
