Camel milk is considered one of the main components of the human diet in many parts of the World. The main components of whey proteins in camel milk and colostrum were similar to that in bovine, except for the lack in β-lactoglobulin. Due to its property camel milk has been also recommended to be consumed by children who are allergic to bovine milk. Other whey proteins which have been identified in camel milk include serum albumin, α-lactalbumin, immunoglobulins, lactophorin and peptidoglycan recognition protein. It has a high concentration of insulin used for diabetes. In addition, camel milk is used to stabilize the condition of patients with biliary atresia due to vitamin concentration at high concentration. Another application area of the camel milk due to its antibacterial and anti-viral properties is to use in human medicine. It has high concentration of insulin which is used for diabetes.
