It might not sound nice, but cockroach milk could be a new superfood. Insect dairy could soon be in supermarkets. Scientists say insect milk is a good alternative to cow's milk. However, it might be hard for people to accept milk from bugs. Scientists studied the milk from the Pacific Beetle cockroach. They found it was more nutritious than cow's milk. It had more than three times the energy of dairy milk. It was also full of protein.
Milking cockroaches for the human population isn't as easy as milking cows. An alternative is to recreate the milk in a lab, and then mass-produce it in factories. One company has already started selling insect-milk ice cream. It says the milk is, "a sustainable, nature-friendly...delicious, guilt-free dairy alternative of the future". It won't be long before other companies start making food and drinks using milk from insects.
