Story at-a-glance -

  • The female Pacific beetle cockroach is the only known cockroach species to be viviparous, meaning they give birth to live young and nurse their offspring
  • As cockroach embryos drink their mother’s milk, it concentrates inside their guts and forms tiny crystals, which are considered a complete food with proteins, fats and sugars
  • Scientists found that cockroach crystal milk protein can be extracted, and have been working on reverse-bioengineering it for mass production, possibly as a supplement
  • Because cockroach milk has quadruple the nutrition value in comparison to cow’s milk, it may in the future be tapped to feed the world
