A dairy in UAE is coming out with camel milk ice cream in flavours hitherto unavailable in the market.
It will be the first such product in a country where camel milk forms an integral part of the traditional diet.
“We have spent a lot of time creating flavours that we feel are different and most importantly not available in the market,” Abdullah Saif Al Darmaki,the CEO of Al Ain Dairy,said.
Camels milk is slightly saltier than that of a cow and is believed to have numerous health benefits.

Al Darmaki said his firm has spent a lot of time in creating flavours that are different. The technology for making this ice cream is exactly the same as for ice cream made from cows milk.
“But,we wanted to do something completely different which is why we have invested in new technology to produce a range of camel milk ice creams in niche flavours,” he said.
The ice cream will be produced with pure camel milk and ingredients,with no additives of cow milk-based ingredients. The company has already started producing the ice cream on pilot bases. It unveiled preview samples of its new product last November at the Date Palm Festival in Abu Dhabi.
Four flavours – dates,saffron,caramel and chocolate – have been created for the ice cream and Al Darmaki hopes they will attract people.
“We know that there is a demand for this product that we can truly satisfy in an innovative way,” he said.
