Benefits of Camel Milk
April 30, 2019

1. High in Unsaturated Fats

Camel milk is high in unsaturated fatty acids, which help reduce cholesterol and maintain a healthy heart. Its high vitamin C content (3 to 5 times higher than cow’s milk) makes it an excellent immunity booster

2. Great for kids!

Camel milk is close in composition to human milk, making it nutritionally beneficial for babies and children

3. A healthy gut

Camel milk is a natural probiotic, which aids in maintaining a healthy gut

4. Healing powers

Camel milk has been found to have positive effects for patients that suffer from diabetes, hepatitis C and autoimmune diseases

5. Cow's milk alternative

Unlike traditional cow’s milk, camel milk is easier for the body to digest, which is great news for those who suffer from lactose intolerance. There are also no known allergies to camel milk so it’s a great substitute for people who are allergic to cow’s milk.

So how do I use it?

Camel milk has a very similar taste profile to that of cow’s milk – the only noticeable difference is that camel milk is slightly saltier. It can be used to make yoghurt, paneer, ghee, ice cream and even chocolate. Simply use camel milk exactly as you would use cow’s milk in baking or cooking!
