چکیده :
Camel milk is opaque white in color, foamy, with a weak sweet smell, spicy taste and sometimes a little salty. Its opaque white color is due to the fats that are well-homogenized throughout the milk, and its taste changes due to feeding on shrubs. And special plants in the dry area and water consumption. Camel has the ability to live in harsh conditions, hot and harsh weather and frequent lack of water, and in these conditions it produces more milk than other species. The most important factors affecting milk production in camels include: breed, age, breed, season, feeding and management (milking routine and milking method: manual or machine milking). The components of camel milk are protein 3.4%, fat 3.5%, lactose 4.4%, ash 0.79% and water 87%. Its density is reported from 1.026 to 1.035, pH from 6.2 to 6.5, and its viscosity at 20°C is 1.72 mPa/s.
