Washington D.C., July 31 : If you are bored with your regular snack, then here's a new snack found- cockroach milk.
Scientists have just found that milk from a certain cockroach is much more nutritious for humans than a cow's milk, reports Interesting Engineering blog.
An international team of researchers has been working on the study to analyse the fluid found in the mid-gut of cockroaches, which is technically cockroach milk.
This protein string is produced to feed their young, and if researchers can find a way to extract a lot of it, they may be able to turn it into a superfood.
Part of why the researchers think this protein may be so promising, according to Futurism, is the presence of everything needed for a meal - fats, sugars, proteins.
In actuality, the team likely isn't thinking of producing cockroach milking farms, but isolating and synthesizing the specific protein compound may be able to help solve future food shortages and other problems.
