Have you ever wondered what the healthiest type of milk is? It has been shown that camel’s milk is the healthiest and it comes with benefits!
Are you ever concerned about what you’re consuming and how it could be affecting your body? You’ve always heard to drink your milk because it will build strong bones and teeth, but what they didn’t tell you is the process that cow’s milk goes through before it is packaged and sold. Cow’s milk is put through a heavy process of pasteurization, which removes all the nutrients from it and adds artificial ‘nutrients’ to it. Which, really, isn’t any good for you at all. So, are you wondering what kind of milk IS right for you?
While we are worried about the cow’s milk we consume daily, wondering whether it might contain some aflatoxins in it, people living in East Africa do not share our concerns. In this region, instead of cow’s milk people consume camel milk, which maintains them healthy and turns out to be quite a profitable business.
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimated the potential of camel milk merchandise within the global market to be 10 billion dollars. After cow’s milk and soy milk- the milk of camels is next in line to stir up a new revolution, as producers claim.
Camel milk is slightly saltier than cow’s milk, but much healthier. This milk is not even half as fatty as cow’s milk is, and it contains a high amount of proteins, B vitamins, unsaturated fatty acids, and is ten times as rich in iron, as well as 4-5 times as rich in vitamin C as cow’s milk. Moreover, as studies have shown, the antibodies contained in this milk can help fight against cancer, Alzheimer’s, AIDS, and Hepatitis C.
Bedouins drink approximately 1-2 liters of camel milk a day, an amount which is enough to keep them satiated for a whole day. Furthermore, one advantage of camel milk is that it doesn’t go bad quickly and thus it can be kept fresh for a longer period. In addition, people from the Arab countries believe that camel milk has soothing effects on the nervous system.
Camel milk can be purchased in restaurants and supermarkets.
