Creme de la Camel
Would you like that coffee with one hump, or two? Camel milk may be the next global trend in dairy!
Though they're not currently available in the United States, camel milk, cheese, and other dairy products have already made commercial appearances in the United Arab Emirates. Camel milk cappuccinos, for example, known as "camelccinos", are on one cafe's menu in Dubai. Mauritanian Tiviski Dairy has also recently developed Caravene, a soft, creamy camel cheese with a bloomy rind, nicknamed "Camelbert," for its similarities to Brie and Camembert!
Got camel milk? This may or may not be a strange question, depending on where in the world you live. Although camels and their milk are most commonly associated with the desert landscapes of the Middle East and North Africa, the camel's origin can be traced back to the Protyplus, an animal similar in size to a hare that inhabited North America nearly forty million years ago.
