Who Drinks Camel Milk and Eats Camel Meat
Interesting facts for the curious mind about eating camel meat, drinking camel milk and making leather goods from camel hide.
The camel, like the cow, has a four-quartered udder. There are four teats, each having two holes. The camels are milked an average of three times a day and depending on the season, dry or rainy, the average milk production is about 5-30 liters per day. Camels lactate for about a year and unlike cows, which store all their milk in their udders, camels keep their milk further up their bodies.
Camels milk is generally opaque white. Normally it has a sweet and sharp taste, but sometimes it is salty and at times the milk tastes watery. Some people think camel milk tastes terrible but you are the judge. Camel’s milk is frothy and the type of food and the availability of drinking water cause changes in taste. Camel milk is rich in vitamin C, has more fat and protein and lower in lactose than cow's milk.
