Dairy products produced from camel milk were exhibited in Incirliova
Products made from camel milk were exhibited in the Incirliova district of Aydın (Turquey). Products such as cheese, yogurt and buttermilk made from camel milk were featured at the kick-off meeting. President Kaya stated that the products produced are currently exported to 7 countries.
POSSIBILITIES TO PRODUCE YOGHURT FROM CAMEL MILK
Recently, the use of camel milk has increased as a new and alternative animal protein source for human consumption. However, there are some differences in the composition of camel milk compared with other kind of milk sources. One of these differences is that camel milk contains in high concentrations of antimicrobial agents such as lysozyme, lactoferrin, lacto-peroxidase and immunoglobulins. In many studies, it was reported that camel milk is not suitable for production of fermented milk, especially for yoghurt, due to the high concentration of antimicrobial substances.
Agreement for the commercialization of camel milk products in France
The Ministry of Agriculture and Food has just confirmed new agreements for the marketing of camel milk produced in France, responding to the request of the president of the French Federation of Camels, Olivier Philipponneau; Doctor Bernard Faye, pioneer scientist of camel milk throughout the world and vice-president of the French Federation of Camels; and the director of the company Camel-Idea and vice-president of the French Federation of Camels, Fabrice Weecksteen.
An important regulatory goal in Argelia by Amina Narimane
Camel milk has a high content of basic nutrients (proteins, lipids, lactose), of vitamin C and niacin. Its powerful natural protective system (lysozyme, lactoperoxidase, lactoferrin,
immunoglobulins and proteose-peptones3) distinguish it from other milks and make it a superfood.
