    Default Camel's milk

    L has been having a little camel's milk mixed in with BM during the day. (DH brought some home a few days ago from the supermarket.) I was completely disgusted by the thought of my son drinking it until I went online and found out that it is actually very healthy...

    Got milk? Get the hump...
    Camel milk is rich in Vitamin C, unsaturated fat, B vitamins, iron and antibodies. These qualities have, in many parts of the world, helped it to achieve the super-food status that broccolli, blueberries and bananas have enjoyed on the shelves of supermarkets in the UK. For example, in India, Russia and Kazakhstan it is routinely prescribed to convalescing patients. In Africa, camel's milk is believed to provide valuable nutrition for AIDS patients. United Arab Emirates technologists are currently working on camel milk antibodies in an effort to engineer treatments to combat Alzheimer's disease, hepatitis C infection and certain cancers.

    Researchers in India have found that a diet that includes camel's milk can reduce the amount of insulin required by patients to control their Type-1 diabetes. Insulin-like proteins in the milk can apparently supplement the therapeutic effect of the patients' medication.


    And I even found a camel dairy "farm" in the U.S: http://www.cameldairy.com/

    Still, I won't be consuming it myself. I'm not very adventurous when it comes to new food...

    How cool! Thanks for the info. Maybe you could mix it into a smoothie, and you'd never know the difference!

    My first instinct is but I suppose there are lots of people in the world who'd think cow milk sounds gross, too. That's really cool that you're able to expose ds to different perspectives like that. I might have had to taste it myself...just to see.

    I thought about it today. I imagine I might be able to put a drop on my tongue before long. But a full swig? I dunno about that...

    She has a point..it is in your fridge. I think it's your duty to let us know what it tastes like!

    And a quick moment to point out that I am juvenile and I laughed when I read that statement above. Actually, I got the hump and then I got milk!

    I have never tasted it myself since I have never seen it around but I wondered why do you think it is gross? It is just another animal like cows or goats. I will definitely try it if I ever come across.
