Camel milk is attracting millions of people at the global level. The main attraction is its health promising characteristics. Camel milk might be super food as well as a natural pharmacy in the ongoing climate change scenario. Human health's challenges like viral outbreaks, super bugs, and allergies etc can be better addressed with the camel milk.
Yesterday, I visited the Gulf Food Festival 2018, Gulf Food 2018 and spent enough time with the camel milk outlets “camelait”. Camelait! Al Ain Camel Dairy Products.Many people visited the stall and showed a keen interest in camel milk. I also visited the other camel milk business outlet (Camelicious) and discuss the overall camel milk (CM) demand and interest of the masses.
Some people were selling/marketing camel milk from other countries like Australia and India. Shrey Kumar from India (the Co-founder of the Aadvik foods) also met me there. He is already my facebook contact and recognized me by face as we could never meet personally before. I also met Hani from Australi (Auslink Investment), who was also looking for the camel milk powder export.
Yesterday evening, I received the following report from Mike (Shah Alam, Malaysia). It is very interesting and even heart touching. He message is in the ensuing lines.Mike Facebook Page
Very interesting, Just want to update you on some new progress on camel milk. Last week (first week of August, 2017), I gave 3 sachet (25g X3) Camelait powder (camel milk powder of Alain dairy) to a mum (Camelait! Al Ain Camel Dairy Products).
She has a nonverbal kid (3 years and 8 month of age) with speaking complications. The camel milk gave a magic result. The mum of the kid called me and told that just in a week the boy started to talk basic 2~3 words like Goodbye or Goodnight to the family members. I want milk and sleep in Chinese. Both parents really surprised. Even his special attention school teacher also notice the changes. So far best feedback I have heard.
I hereby request the sophisticated research facilities all around the world to come forward and conduct scientific trials with accurate results and huge data to give the true and scientific portrait regarding the camel milk. Camel milk is a unique gift of the nature (natural therapy) to avoid chemicals and antibiotics consumption which are threatening our health in many ways. Camel milk has the real worth to be used as natural pharmacy. Detailed Nutritional Composition of Bactrian Camel’s Milk
When it’s too dry for dairy cows, what do you do? Switch to camel milk
The African nomads find new ways to adapt with the challenge of the climate change. As increasingly fierce, frequent and lengthy dry spells hit northern Kenya, raising dairy cattle has gotten ever harder. But after seeing her initial five camels thrive while eating just tree branches and leaves, Yousef sold 100 cows to buy more expensive camels, whose milk now never dries up.

Camel is really a very crucial and precious creature playing a pivotal role to materialize livelihood in the hardiest terrains of the world in the harshest environmental conditions. Camel has the unique power of adaptability and is considered as the best answer to the climate change calamities. Camel! A One in All Creatures.
Isiolo, a provincial town about five hours’ drive north of the capital, Nairobi, has become a real camel hub already. Maalim and around thirty other women now bring about five thousand liters of camel milk daily to a distribution point in the center of the provincial town. The women receive support from the Dutch development organization SNV, which helped them finance a cooling tank. “Thanks to the profits of the camel milk I can send my eight children to school, and one even goes to university,” Maalim says, as she hands in her plastic yellow jerry cans full of camel milk.Kenyans turn to camels to cope with climate change
Currently, the milk is transported in passenger buses. But as the milk frequently gets stolen or goes bad when buses break down, the women are trying to get a loan to buy a cooling truck to transport the milk to Nairobi. “We also have plans to produce yogurt, pack our products and to export to Somalia,” she says and adds that an international airport has recently been opened near Isiolo. “We are facing a bright future – thanks to camel milk.”
She writes as “My argument leading on from my earlier statements, regarding why Simpson’s conclusion which explicitly implies “do not drink camel’s milk” is unsound is twofold. Firstly from a philosophical perspective and secondly from a scientific perspective.
It is well documented the symbiotic relationship between humans and the non-human world. The necessity, joy, physical and psychological health benefits. This is not new; it is ancient wisdom which is still traveling the world. It is not the “keeping” of non-human animals, be it for food or pleasure but MORE significant how the creatures are kept and how they are killed! My argument for free range and so forth. Furthermore, if one cannot kill an animal, one should therefore not eat the animal. This is ethical and puts one in a special relationship to such animal.
I ask you, Simpson, do you eat meat or any products from an animal? Do you wear leather or wool? By virtue of being “human “, we have all crossed this boundary.
I agree that the killing for killing’s sake, and using the non-human world for human greed, sexual exploitation and money is evil.
My position comes from “Deep Ecology” and an environmental ethic. So it is not wrong to drink any form of milk! It is the way the milk is collected. There is this western MYTH that infiltrated our psyche claiming that milk is unhealthy and causing cruelty in the production. Firstly, it is the pasteurization and homogenization that is killing us and creating allergies and gut problems. You can Google evidence for my claims. Secondly, I agree that many animals are kept in cruel conditions for milking and have their calves taken. This is too general a statement. That inductive reasoning is fallacious.
Camels milk is produced quite differently. I have visited many camel farms that produce milk and they are free range, stress-free, and the calves are only taken for short periods, if at all.
An important environmental point is that “soft hooved” animals (camels) are far more environmentally sustainable than “hard hooved” animals.
It is well documented the medicinal properties of camel’s milk! Please research. It is this symbiotic, beautiful relationship that I am talking about. There does not have to be cruelty. Understand through Science what the non-human world, the sentient and non-sentient world has to offer is magnificent and awe-inspiring. Many of our medical discoveries and medicines have been achieved this way. That is why we need to embrace and nurture, not have “dominion over”.
I am, for the most part, a vegetarian. I only eat what I can kill. Chicken and fish. I drink camel’s milk straight from the camel. I try and reduce and be aware of my carbon footprint. I do this as I am responsible for my health and well being and try not to consume too much of the health dollar. I am extremely healthy and strong in comparison to many of similar age. Food is medicine and we ought to understand this.
Finally, Simpson your opinion (and that is all it is) is fraught with paradoxes and smacks of “yuppie” ideology, giving very little understanding not only of poor countries that are kept alive on camels milk but furthermore the wonderful life-enhancing gifts that the beloved camel has to offer.”
Camels’ milk is the king of the milk kingdom, said by the Bactrian camel keepers in Central Asia. It is the first choice for health maintenance. They think that their milk is more nourishing than their sister camel (dromedary) and all other animals.
Our milk is high grade but tastes a little bit salty because of my taste as I like salty bushes; the only ice cream for me in the ecosystems where I live. I live in very cold regions and hence producing milk thicker than my sibling dromedary. My milk keeps a desirable PH of the human body as it is a bit alkaline. I have the physical effect on the stomach of my keepers to make them happy and in a good mood. Detailed Nutritional Composition of Bactrian Camel’s Milk
My milk is rich in protein (4.5%), making me special food item for the poor and undernourished group of the human being. Bactrian milk protein contains many health promising elements as various Amino Acids and Vitamins, Lysozymes & Lactoferrin, and Immunoglobulin; all are protective and bio-active.
As recorded in Compendium of Materia Medica; “Camel milk, cold, non-toxic, can invigorate spleen-stomach and replenish vitality, and strengthen tendons and bones, so that people won’t feel hungry after drinking it.“
As recorded in drugs commonly used by Uighur Medicine: “Camel Milk is sweet taste with cream flavor, free of sense of adhesion, a little bitter, and can significantly strengthen spleen and invigorate stomach, nourish the five internal organs and repair the impairments of those organs, strengthen tendons and bones, and recover the vital essence and marrow, so that people won’t feel hungry or thirsty after drinking it.”About Camel Milk~With Bactrian Perspectives
In the blogs published before; almost all the information reported is about the dromedary camel. I was looking if the traditional healers think the same about the Bactrian camels’ milk or not. So, I found a lot of information. A short book I received from the Xinjiang Wangyuan Camel Milk Industry is really full of information. They are really doing a great job.
