 Camel Milk and Its Products All Set to Hit Stores in Britain

Camel milk imported from the United Arab Emirates is all set to hit stores in Britain and soon there would be an array of products made from camel milk like chocolates and ice cream to entice the taste buds.

According to the Daily Mail, camels in UAE have so much of milk that next year, it may be exported to Britain and sold in specialty stores,


And promoters in the UAE reckon that it's healthier than cow milk.

"People with lactose intolerance can drink it with no problem, unlike cow's milk," the New York Daily News quoted Ulrich Wernery, scientific director of Dubai's Center for Veterinary Research Laboratory, as saying.

The European Commission recently gave the green light to a plan for screening camel milk- an EU panel will inspect two dairy farms in the UAE that produce camel milk - Al Ain Dairy, which has "Camelait," and the Emirates Industry for Camel Milk and Products, which offers "Camelicious."

If the EU permits exporting the milk to Britain, the camel milk market eventually could expand to the United States, Canada, Hong Kong and China.

Camel milk not only is closer in composition to human milk, it's also high in Vitamin C, a nutrient that might explain camel milk's importance to Bedouins.

These nomads, longtime camel-milk consumers, historically have not eaten many fruits or vegetables, a rich source of this vitamin.
