Web Desk: We already have variety of milk but the most nutritious is the milk that is derived from this unexpected insect. According to the recent studies, the nutrient-rich milk crystal found inside cockroach milk, specifically the ‘pacific beetle’, might be one of the most nutritious superfoods, let alone a more nutritious milk product!
Cockroach is the only specie that gives birth to the live young roaches and is able to feed its babies with protein-dense crystal.
The study discovered that a single milk crystal is not only high in calories, but it contains more than thrice the energy that the same amount of dairy milk does! It is a storehouse of nutrients. It has four times much more protein than cow’s milk, three times more than buffalo milk and contains the complete range of amino acid.
Currently it is in the supplement form, but the research team, is now trying to develop the milk into a supplement in the future. Producing of one pill takes a hundred or so cockroaches.
