Due to the fact that the population of our planet is constantgrowing, scientists are now in search of new ways to feed humanity. So, one of the most promising products of the future may well be cockroach milk.

Cockroach milk can become a superfood

Despite the very unusual name andthe original method of obtaining, milk produced from cockroaches, is four times more nutritious than the usual cow's milk. To prove this fact, an international team of scientists from the Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine in India successfully isolated a protein from the intestines of a cockroach of the species Diploptera punctata. The insect lives in the Pacific region and is the only viviparous cockroach in the world. In order to feed their offspring, cockroaches of this species secrete a special substance that is several times superior to buffalo milk in its energy qualities.

By the way, not only cockroach milk sooncan be used for food purposes. Earlier, we wrote that chicken can be made from peas, and the usual bread for all will be made from grasshoppers. You can find these and many other materials in our Yandex Zen.
