Milk, it does a body good

Biochemistry300IFLScience: Cockroach Milk Could Make A Nutritious Meal In The Future

As of yet, there are no plans to make this roach milk into a commercial product, though the researchers do have plans to use a yeast system to try and produce these crystals en masse. Many are speculating that soon insects could play a major part in our diet as the world struggles under the stress of conventional food production.

Unlike the author, I don’t foresee any trouble with marketing the protein crystals if this goes into production, and I hope after appropriate testing it does. It might gain some notoriety at first, but that’ll die down as it’s relegated to another multi-syllabic additive in the ingredients list.
