Cockroach Milk: The next "future" food?


#1

“Cockroach milk is the protein drink you didn’t know you’ve been missing” by CNN

Also:
“Is cockroach milk the superfood of the future?” by CBS News


Article on "Disgusting Food Trends" includes Soylent/Coffiest

Nope. All of my nopes. :grimacing:


#3

If sustainability means cockroach milk & cricket flour, I’d rather be unsustainable.


#4

That’ll get you (or possibly your great-great-grandchildren) to cockroach milk and cricket flour too, just slower.


#5

Or we could focus more on making existing stuff more sustainable instead of trying to get people to eat bugs.


#6

I suppose you want some sort of magical, just-add-water, made-from-algae-or-something powdered food that provides you with all the nutrients you need! Good luck buddy!


#7

I would just hate to be the poor bastard that has to try and find the nipples on all those cockroaches to milk.

[Remembers that one scene from Meet The Parents talking about milking cats.]

That sounds great, if only it were real…


#10

My goodness… I have to defend myself daily from the exact same outrage lobbed at Soylent. I thought we were more rational and more techno-optimist than that… SMH.

I, for one, hope Rose Labs uses this new research to improve the Soylent blend.

Cockroaches have been called the perfect creature


#12

Probably just cheaper to mass produce a Soylent-like product than to mass produce cockroach/cricket-based food.


#13

The article talks about bioengineering the proteins, not mass-producing them somehow from cockroaches.
