Nursing Baby Camel


Baby camels nurse from their mamas for about two years. Camel milk is also good for humans. It is very nutritious, and compared to cow’s milk, is higher is Vitamin C and is more easily digested, which makes it better for those who are lactose intolerant. Another interesting fact about camel’s milk is that is doesn’t curdle! It also has wonderful health benefits, such as controlling diabetes due to its high concentration of insulin and being great for one’s skin because its content is so high in fatty acids like lanolin. Camel milk is an important dietary staple for many people in the world.

    After reading this post, I hurried off to look up information on websites about this camel’s milk and Vitamin C does appear in all of the articles as a vitamin source in this nutritious milk. This is very interesting and I would love to try it.

    Thank you for popping over to my blog from time to time. I appreciate your reading and it. This morning I must have read for an hour and got caught up on yours. This is such an interesting blog. Thank you for writing and sharing a bit about your part of the world.

    PRIVATE PLEASE
    Susie, pardon my ignorance. I forgot that Vit. D is only a supplement to cow’s milk.
    So camels really have Vitamin C in their milk! Sorry, I just found that so strange, that’s what made me ask.

    PRIVATE
    Susie, did you mean Vitamin D? Could it really be Vit. C?

    Sweet baby, all legs.
    Do they ever sell this milk in stores or do you have to go get it?
