UAE-based Al Ain Dairy has introduced camel milk ice cream available in select retail outlets throughout the UAE under the Camelait brand. The ice creams are available in six flavours – date, saffron, cardamom, chocolate, caramel and lite raspberry vanilla. This unique ice cream combines 100% fresh camel milk ice cream with ripples of complimentary sauces and/or nut pieces that appeal to all tastes while also complimenting the traditional tastes of the Arabian region.
Another pioneering debut from Al Ain Dairy is camel milk powder made by evaporating 100% natural fresh camel milk to dryness. Fresh pasteurised camel milk is first concentrated in an evaporator to approximately 50% milk solids. The resulting concentrated milk is then sprayed into a drying chamber where the water almost instantly evaporates, leaving fine particles of powdered milk solids. Prior to procuring a spray drying unit, Al Ain Dairy performed trials of camel milk production in Singapore and used spray drying technology from facilities of a spray dryer manufacturing in Denmark. The raw material is 100% pure fresh camel milk with no added neutralisers, preservatives or other chemicals. Camelait Camel Milk Powder provides consumer convenience with a shelf life of one year making it also a prime product for export to the international market.
“As the demand for naturally nutritious products continually rises in European and North American markets, we feel the presence for our Camelait products is necessary now more than ever. And with new studies showing promising medical benefits of camel milk, it is our mission to ensure these locally produced products are available to consumers around the world,” says CEO Abdullah Saif Al Darmaki.
