Does any culture on Earth think highly of or revere cockroaches? Does any culture worship cockroaches?

If there is, their word for cockroaches will be the word on the product.

It’s gotta be better for you than oat “milk.”

According to the Web site, Amazing Animals Planet:

Cockroach milk is a protein rich, crystallized substance produced by a specific type of cockroach called Diploptera punctata. This species is unique because it gives birth to live offspring. Members make “milk” in the form of protein crystals to serve as food for their developing young.

“Diplo-” means folded (doubled over), “ptera” is Greek for wing. I’d have to look up whether “punctata” means pointed or punctured.

Can’t be much worse than the ones they milk the almonds with. Maybe bigger.

Don’t let’s pretend like there’s not already cockroach “every part” in a lot of our foods. I’ll pass on this one, though.

The article does say there’s really no such thing as superfood.

The term “superfood” has become quite popular in recent years.

Nutritionally speaking, there is no such thing. However, certain foods have been called superfoods for marketing purposes if they are considered nutrient-rich and have been associated with health benefits.


yea no such thing as a super food yet the first darn sentence of the article says it is HAHA

plant that word into brains and real fast it becomes a marketing ploy that sticks…that darn super food…seems to be tons of them out there now LOL

right up there with that ‘magic pill’ HAHA
