Last milk post- I think- again I never thought of camel milk before either. Well of course it has been used medicinally for centuries by nomadic people’s. Part of the reasoning could be that camel’s milk is the closest milk to mother’s milk. Its unique blend helps the immune system. It has also been suggested to have potential in benefiting diabetes and autism. Camels milk also:
- has 10 times the iron
- has 3 times as much vitamin C
- more B vitamins
- lacks certain allergens, which often makes it more readily digestible for those with allergies
Never tried it but they say it is a great base for yogurt. Interestingly when I first looked for camel’s milk it pulled up camel’s milk chocolate first! Hmm….
