Most camels’ milk is consumed raw, unpasteurized, or soured, it has a sweet and sharp taste, but sometimes it is salty however, the type of food and the amount of drinking water consumed by the camel cause the changes in taste. Camels can yield ample amounts of milk in dry desert regions where other animals such as cows and sheep’s and goats have very low production.

Camels' milk is naturally acidic having a pH between 6.5–6.7. Due to the natural high acidic nature of camel milk and the desert environment usually associated with nomads.

According to USA Today, camel farms with breeding camels are adopting camel milking programs in the states of Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania, with new milking programs set to open in Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. The camel population in the U.S. is estimated at 5,000.
