This may sound a little unpleasant for some people. But for the residents and workers of United Arab Emirates, They like to eat ice cream....made from camel's milk. You heard it right.
Camel's milk is selling like hot cakes now in U.A.E. Instead of buying goat's milk. Most people In U.A.E. are now into camel's milk. Even chocolates that are made from camel's milk were a big hit.
A tribe of Bedouin i n Al Ain were groups of people that take camel's milk so that they can last more days in the dessert and withstand the heat. Because They say that this kind of milk is good against heat. Even though it may have a bad smell and unpleasant taste, more and more residents(in UAE) nowadays are drinking camel's milk.
Seedhara M.J. A production Manager of Al AinFarms for Livestock Dairy Productions(AAFLDP) said that Camel's milk wasn't consumed very often before, It was once only used for Diabetes. Because It is high in Insulin.Seedhara also mentioned that AAFLDP now produced ice cream and chocolates made from Pure Camel's milk.
Seedhara also said that
It is low in fat content. It only has 2 to 2.5 % only or 40% less cholesterol compare to cows milk.
High in Microbial protein-Lactoferin that strengthen the immune system
High in Vitamin C and Minerals
It also has moisturizing agent Elastin that helps reduce wrinkles, Strengthens teeth, hair and skin
Helps people with allergies and are lactose intolerance
Very rich in Calcium that makes bones stronger, Helps pregnant women and prevents osteoporosis
I love milk, most of us do. But, I don't think everyone would be into this. Even after you've heard about the benefits. I think i can try the chocolate ice cream, but i don't think I'm ready for the pure Camel's milk.
