Recently, consumers’ interest in camel milk has been largely due to awareness of its unique health benefits. Camel milk is rich in vitamins C, B3, Mn, iron, Cu and Zn rather than cow milk. It is a suitable substitute for human milk and great alternative for kids with allergy to cow milk due to lack of β-lactoglobulin and low β-casein as allergic proteins [4]. Also, camel milk has high amount of mono-and polyunsaturated fatty acids that have beneficial effects on the human health. Smaller size of immunoglobulins or nobodies of camel milk enhances the immune system and anti-inflammatory responses. Higher amount of zinc in the camel milk has key role for maintenance of normal function of immune system.
