FAQ’s

 

DOES FREEZE DRIED MILK HAVE THE SAME BENEFITS AS THE LIQUID?

 

Yes! Lab tests have shown that Freeze Dried milk retains the same proteins, nutrients and properties as its original liquid state. Spray drying though cheap and fast will alter the milks proteins and compounds, freeze drying on the other hand is the highest quality drying method and keeps the health qualities intact. You can read our in depth article on the subject (Blog Link)

 

SHOULD CAMEL MILK BE PASTEURIZED?

 

Absolutely! Camel excrement can easily splash onto their udders contaminating them with E-coli, salmonella and other pathogenic bacteria. Dairy products should be pasteurized to kill these pathogens especially when dealing with children, seniors or those with weak immune systems. There are good (Flash) and bad (Slow) pasteurization methods.  We use the optimal flash (15 second) pasteurization, which has shown in studies not to denature the milk and it’s health properties. The flash pasteurization method is  even currently used by colostrum nutraceutical companies because it’s proven to protect the milks vital nutrients and properties. The less expensive and slow 30-minute pasteurization process takes a long time to heat to the required temperature. During this interval, bacteria grow in the milk and eat its health properties, rendering the product ineffective.

 

IS YOUR MILK ORGANIC?

CAN YOU EXPERIENCE ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM DRINKING CAMEL MILK?

 

Camel milk has a multitude of powerful properties that boost your body’s natural detoxing system. This can start a flushing process for the first few days as the body tries to eliminate unwanted toxins. A “Herx” reaction is the common term for “feeling worse before you get better.”. So don’t feel discouraged or worried if you have some minor changes in bowel movements or energy levels; the body is trying to “restart” natural processes. If symptoms persist for longer than 3 days or they worsen, stop immediately and contact your health practitioner. Always use your own judgement as everyone is different!

 

HOW MUCH CAMEL MILK SHOULD I DRINK FOR HEALTH BENEFITS?

 

The amount you should drink is 1 tablespoon 2x a day. Always follow the guideline of drinking 10-15 minutes before a major meal (breakfast, lunch etc.) or 2 hours after to avoid the harsh stomach acid. To support and optimize your blood sugar: 1 tablespoon 3x a day, 10-15 minutes before a major meal. If you need maximum support or quicker results: 2 tablespoons, 2x a day. If it is a very sensitive individual or child: start with 1 teaspoon daily and slowly make your way up to an agreeable amount.

 

WHAT DOES YOUR CAMEL MILK TASTE LIKE?

 

Camel Milk has a lighter and sweeter taste compared to cow’s milk. India has some of the tastiest camel milk in the world without the unwanted flavors from grain based diets. Because our camels are free to roam and eat diverse diets of local vegetation and herbs, our product results in a unique and delicious taste.

 

HOW DO YOU ENSURE THAT THE MILK IS PURE AND UN-ADULTERATED?

 

Milk samples are tested from each batch to assure that there is no contamination. Our farmers and staff follow great ethical & hygienic practices at every stage of milk processing. As a safe guard we also flash pasteurize our milk to protect our customers. The flash pasteurization method is currently used by colostrum nutraceutical companies because it’s proven to protect the milks vital nutrients and properties.

 

HOW DO I MIX MY CAMEL MILK POWDER?

 

Blenders are the best way to re-hydrate camel milk to it’s former state. Though hand held mixers or even small milk frothers can be used for convenience and easy clean up. Using slightly warm or room temperature water helps the reconstituting process. You can also mix camel milk powder into light (preferably to avoid stomach acid) smoothies or make a warm beverage like hot chocolate, mushroom latte, and coffee!

 

CAN ANYBODY DRINK CAMEL MILK?

 

Camel milk has been shown to be a very safe alternative to cow milk with very little to no uncomfortable side effects associated with dairy sensitivity. This could be due to the lack of allergenic beta-casein and lactoglobulin and small protein size. Those that negatively react to goat or sheep milk find that camel milk is a safer alternative.

 

WHERE DO YOU SOURCE YOUR CAMEL MILK?

 

Presently, our camel milk is sourced from indigenous farmers in Rajasthan and Gujarat India, who have been raising camels for countless years. We’ve chosen these Indian states because they can benefit most from increased camel milk sales, saving their herds and improving local communities.
