It may sound wired but it is a fact. These cockroach species have the high-in protein rich crystals which they secrete to feed their kids. This has been accepted by both scientists and producers of cockroach milk. This was first discovered in 2016.

And while the idea of munching on a little critter may turn your stomach a little, there is an alternative way to enjoy all the nutritional benefits - cockroach milk. Though, it is not the only hurdle for cockroach milk.

According to 2016 research, milk found from the Australian native Pacific beetle cockroach was found to contain protein sequences packed with essential amino acids, proteins, fats, and sugars. Like humans, the young are directly nourished inside the womb by the mother before they are born.

Forget the almond or soy - cockroach milk could be the next superfood trend! But, there's absolutely no scientific basis or basic regulation for what could be deemed as a superfood. The new study has been published in the Journal of the International Union of Crystallography.

While some health food fanatics may be tempted, trying to milk a common household cockroach will not produce any of this nourishing superfood. Now it is expected that cockroach milk will be soon added to the list of superfoods.

South African company Gourmet Grubb reportedly sells Entomilk, a milk that comes from sustainably farmed insects.

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). Maybe this is not for humans. For the study, the scientists had cut out the middle part of the alimentary canal from the stomach of the cockroach by a scalpel to harvest milk. Also, the roaches are killed during the milking process raising questions about how feasible the process would be on a large scale. It is clear that the process of cultivating cockroach mill is time intensive.

In Reality, the initial superfood craze was launched not by nutritionists or even dieticians, but with way of a fruit company that has been encouraging the import of its own bananas.
