Colostrum (First Milk)
Colostrums (white and slightly diluted as compared with the colostrum of cow) contains antibodies such as IgA, IgG, and IgM. In mammals
Other immune components of colostrum include the major components of the innate immune system, such as lactoferrin, lysozyme, lactoperoxidase, complement, and proline-rich polypeptides. Camel’s colostrum is rich with total solids (TS) and at 3 hours post-partum total solids (T.S.) averaged 30.4 percent. Colostrums are rich with probiotics which act as antibodies which can also be a good tool to fight viral infection. What if scientists suggest camel milk/colostrums for the prevention of AIDS, MARS and Ebola virus.
Its composition is closer to human milk than cow's milk is, so it is better for infant formula powder milk. Also, its higher calcium intake is important for growing children and helps to prevent Osteoporosis. Research proved that camel milk is a safer alternative than goat milk for kids in cow milk allergy (CMA) situation. Furthermore, like human milk, camel milk does not contain β lactoglobulin, the protein present in cow’s, goat’s and horse’s milk that is the main cause of cow’s milk allergy. Cow’s milk allergy can also be caused by hypersensitivity to beta-casein. Camel milk also contains beta-casein, but the structure of this protein in camel milk is very different to the structure of this protein in cow’s milk.
Possible Super Market for Camel Milk
It could be the 'super food' of the future in the Western and other developed countries, and generate much-needed income for developing countries. The United Nations is calling for the milk to be sold to the West. Japan and other Far East countries can be great markets for camel milk and a replacement for shark fins; I think.
