If you wanted a refreshing and healthy beverage, odds are you might not immediately reach for the camel milk.
But believe it or not, it's not only naturally skimmed, has three times the vitamin C of cow's milk and is packed with antibodies…
It's also apparently pretty tasty!
In certain African communities, camels are relied on for their milk because they can produce milk even during the dry season or during droughts.
Camels can go without water for an astounding 10 days!
So now the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is looking into camel milk trading at an international level.
An executive director at FAO said:
"We are in the process of building a mini dairy processing centre in Garissa. We are also encouraging camel ownership in the communities where camel keeping is not common but the dry land and climate are suitable for camel rearing."
They estimate it could be a $10 BILLION industry!
That'd certainly help pump some much needed money into some African economies.
Would U try camel milk??
