Flavoured camel milk to hit retail stores soon

The department of animal husbandry, dairying & fisheries has asked FSSAI to set standards for camel milk.

Flavoured camel milk, popular as a health drink in Gulf countries is soon going to hit the Indian market, reported ET.

An expert group set up by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is working on setting standards for selling camel milk as a food product for human consumption. The move will not only pave the way for marketing of a product seen as beneficial in curing lifestyle diseases, but also help revive the declining fortunes of India's poor camel breeders who often sell their cow camels for slaughter.

The department of animal husbandry, dairying & fisheries has asked FSSAI to set standards for camel milk."We have passed it on to the expert group on milk and milk products, and they will make their recommendation”, said, K Chandramouli.
 

Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation which owns country’s largest dairy brand Amul has readied a plan to launch camel milk products and is awaiting the food regulator's rules.

“We can start processing 5,000 litres of camel milk at our Kutch project within six months of the standards being notified”, said RS Sodhi, MD, GCMMF.
