A company based in the UAE, which recently unveiled a baby formula made with camel milk, says its unique products are due to hit local markets soon.
"Generally, camel milk is very healthy and has a lot of great benefits which are scientifically-proven," said Camelious Business Development Manager Mutasher Al-Basdry.
Studies have suggested that camel milk is almost as nutritious as human milk and offers 10 times more iron and three times more vitamin C than cow's milk.
The firm, Camelicious, says the newly developed baby formula is the first of its kind worldwide.
It produces more than 40 camel milk based products - including energy drinks, powder milk, and ice cream.
Camel milk has been a staple for desert Arab nomads for generations.
But its boom in modern day food and beverage industries could see it as the UAE's new cash cow.
