Why Should You Include Camel Milk In Your Daily Diet?


Living in the land of the sun, surf and the sea UAE to be specific camel milk is a common occurrence. Until the day that I read the local newspaper that a dairy is promoting camel milk in different flavors such as date, cardamom, rose, chocolate, saffron, and Laban, I was eager to know its health benefits. The paper further bragged that the camel milk is farm fresh, pasteurized and contains only a small amount of fat and natural fruit sugars.

Camel milk has been an integral part of the Bedouin, nomad and pastoral cultures for many centuries. Camel milk is a rich source of protein. It contains linoleic acid and polyunsaturated acids which are essential for human nutrition. It is low in lactose and is very useful for people suffering from lactose intolerance.
