article imageCamel's milk with your tea, sir

By David Masters     Jul 10, 2010 in Food
Camel's milk could soon hit Britain's supermarket shelves as Middle East producers seek to exploit the UK market, it emerged this week.
With a strong salty taste, camel's milk may not score highly on flavour. It is, however, high in vitamin C, low in fat, and more digestible than cow's milk.
Two producers in the Middle East have applied for permission to export camel's milk to Britain. The European Commission has provisionally accepted the applications pending health and hygiene checks.
Camelicious, based in the United Arab Emirates, said it is "confident" of EU approal.
Mutasher Al-Badry, deputy general manager at the company, told the Telegraph: "We don't expect to compete with cow's milk but we know there are lots of people who want to enjoy the health benefits of camel milk."
Camels produce just 13 pints of milk per day, compared to cows who can provide over 50 pints.
