Scientists have discovered that cockroach milk is four times more nutritious than cow’s milk with a protein that releases energy slowly over a long period of time.
The cockroach secretes a type of milk that contains protein crystals to feed it’s embryo’s before they are born.These crystals, in turn, contain protein and essential fats, sugars and amino acids. The protein also has other benefits, like the fact that it releases energy slowly over a long period of time. It’s time released food.
The Centre of Cellular and Molecular Platforms in India which has run the preliminary trials on this stated that ,’Once we can make them (proteins) in significant quantities than the product will be comprehensively tested for safety before deciding on the next steps.’
