The Al Ain Dairy, a leading producer of dairy products in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), is planning to introduce camel milk ice cream in different flavors hitherto unavailable in the market.
"We have spent a lot of time creating flavors that we feel are different and most importantly not available in the market," said Abdullah Saif Al Darmaki, chief executive officer of Al Ain Dairy.
Camel milk, which is slightly saltier than cow's milk, is an integral part of the traditional Arabian diet.
The milk has numerous health benefits that are often reported in scientific and health researches.
Al Darmaki said the technology for making camel milk ice cream was exactly the same as that made from cow's milk.
"But we wanted to do something completely different, which is why we have invested in new technology to produce a range of camel milk ice creams in niche flavors," he said.
The ice cream will be produced with pure camel milk, with no additives.
Four flavors have been created for the ice cream and Al Darmaki hoped they will attract people.
He said both UAE citizens and expatriates enjoy ice cream in four flavors -- dates, saffron, caramel and chocolate.
