A Comprehensive Review of the Composition, Nutritional Value, and Functional Properties of Camel Milk Fat
A comprehensive review of camel milk (CM) fat’s composition and nutritional properties is performed, which appears to be promising in the design and formulation of new products with significant health-promoting benefits.
Nutritional Properties of Camelids and Equids Fresh and Fermented Milk
Differences and similarities in the quality parameters of milk from minor dairy animals, such as camelids and equids, have been compared and both mare and donkey milks show a chemical composition very similar to human milk, and they represent a good replacer of cows’ milk for infants nutrition.
Nutraceutical and Functional Properties of Camelids’ Milk
In most areas of the world, camelids are considered exotic animals, living only in zoological gardens. Additionally, considering the original lands where they were previously bred with specific
Camel Milk Targeting Insulin Receptor—Toward Understanding the Antidiabetic Effects of Camel Milk
The pharmacological targeting of IR by CM sheds more light on the antidi diabetic properties of CM by providing its molecular basis that may constitute a solid rationale for the development of new generation of antidiabetic tools from CM-derived proteins and peptides.
Alternatives to Cow’s Milk-Based Infant Formulas in the Prevention and Management of Cow’s Milk Allergy
Cow’s milk-based infant formulas are the most common substitute to mother’s milk in infancy when breastfeeding is impossible or insufficient, as cow’s milk is a globally available source of mammalian
The effect of camel milk curd masses on rats blood serum biochemical parameters: Preliminary study
The experimental results indicated that curd mass from camel milk could be used as a pure or with additives and it did not discover the observed side effects.
Postbiotic Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid and Camel Milk Intervention as Innovative Trends Against Hyperglycemia and Hyperlipidemia in Streptozotocin-induced C57BL/6J Diabetic Mice
Camel milk was presented as a functional food, and Lactobacillus brevis strains were shown to synthesize postbiotic GABA as a potential food additive, which can therapeutically intervene against hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia in streptozotocin-induced C57BL/6 mice.
Detection of multimycotoxins in camel feed and milk samples and their comparison with the levels in cow milk
Abstract Camel milk has been considered as an important source of nutrients and is commercialized in many countries of the world including the Middle East. This study aimed to investigate the
Low-fat akawi cheese made from bovine-camel milk blends: Rheological properties and microstructural characteristics.
Camel milk (CM) can be used as an ingredient to produce various dairy products but it forms weak rennet-induced and acid-induced gels compared with bovine milk (BM). Therefore, in this study, we
Preserving the food preservation legacy.
This paper deals with the question about how early humans managed to feed themselves, and how they preserved and stored food for times of need. It attempts to show how humans interacted with their


Camel milk: alternative milk for human consumption and its health benefits
This paper aims to explore the possibility of camel milk as an alternative milk for human consumption and its potential contribution in human nutrition in the hot and arid regions of the world.
Nutraceutical Properties of Camel Milk
Camel milk is known in Asia and Africa for 5000 years for its benefits for human health, it has been proven as a useful application in stomach and intestinal disorders, Diabetes-1, food allergy.
Antibacterial Peptides from Goat and Sheep Milk Proteins
A variety of naturally formed bioactive peptides have been found in fermented dairy products, such as yoghurt, sour milk and cheese, and have the potential to be used in the formulation of health-enhancing nutraceuticals, and as potent drugs with well defined pharmacological effects.
Heat coagulation of camel milk
The heat coagulation time (HCT) was determined in the range 100-130C and pH 6-:~-7'1, and compared with measurements on cows' milk, and the whey proteins showed generally higher heat stability than that from cows' mille.
Milk derived bioactive peptides and their impact on human health – A review
Improvement of the antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of camel and bovine whey proteins by limited proteolysis.
Differences in antimicrobial and antioxidant activities between WP hydrolysates of bovine and camel milk and the effects of limited proteolysis on these activities are revealed.
