Soylent Green is... cockroaches?

So for anyone not aware roaches are the food of the future:

Quote:
The industry is booming in China where dried cockroaches can sell for up to US$20 a pound.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cockroach_farming

Among the more memorable quotes in that article:

Quote:
Cockroaches are a cheap source of protein, and, like other insects, are proposed as an alternative to the meat industry.
Better yet:

Quote:
The Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine in Bangalore, India—along with other institutions—are investigating the possibility of farming cockroaches for their milk.
No, no, no, no.

My bet is that the first place you will really start to see them show up (aside from being sold as a novelty item) is in protein powders.

Wonder how the FDA would determine if the roach farming was done in a clean and healthy environment?

Dried mealworms and crickets are already growing quickly in popularity as a cheap protein source, I think I first heard about mass produced snacks in the US 4 or 5 years ago, though they've been around longer than that. I think it is more and more popular with the younger tech crowd of Portland and Seattle.

Helping make cannibalism look better and better as a last resort. And $20/pound?!? I'm suspecting this is an internet troll-a-thon.

In some countries they already sell this as snacks. But I don't know about meat replacement.

In some ways, the meat would not be much different than shellfish like crabs, shrimp and lobsters. They are related and should taste similarly. We already eat lobsters, why not cockroaches?
