United Nation's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) recognized camel milk as
an important commodity[7] to raise the economic standard for people that lived
in the arid and semi-arid desert area. It will be marketed and sold, based on its
nutritional and health benefits, to bring in additional income to these people.
Several research works were conducted to confirm and document these benefits
and some of these works are as follow:

Allergy-Immunology Clinics of the Hamad Medical Corporation showed that
children with allergy to cow's milk can safely take camel's milk

Camel Milk vs. Cow Milk

Why can't people continue to drink cow's milk? It is easily available and cheaper.
Are there any major differences in its quality?

To start with, camel's milk is known to be the closest to human mother's milk and
it is easier even for baby to consume[2]. Research studies from around the world
also confirmed camel's milk as highly nutritious[1][7] and has many unique and
amazing properties as compared to cow's milk.

The composition of whey proteins and caseins in camel's milk differs from cow’s
milk, which could be the reasons for its healing properties.
Other differences are:

Lactose: Lower in camel milk, hence easier for someone who cannot drink cow's
Potassium, magnesium, copper, iron, zinc and sodium: Higher in camel milk
Cholesterol: Lower in camel milk
Vitamin C: Three times higher in camel milk
Iron: Ten times higher in camel milk
Unsaturated fatty acids and B vitamins: Higher in camel milk
Vitamin A and B2: Higher in cow milk
Protein: Higher in camel milk
Antibacterial and antiviral properties: Ten times higher in camel's milk
Easily Absorb: Camel's milk doesn't coagulate easily even in an acid environment
such as in our stomach. Hence, it is easily absorbed by our digestive system
Dissolves Better: Camel milk in powder form will dissolves better
Yield: Camel produces lower yield at 13 pints (6.2 liter) as compared to cow at 50
pints (23.7 liter)
With these several benefits, drinking camel milk does have its advantages.
However, its scarcity makes it more expensive.
