Aadvik is India’s first company to brand, market and sell camel milk powder in India and abroad.
This is 100% pure freeze dried camel milk powder, with no additives, anti-caking agents, sugar or flabourings.
We’ve tried sources from India, Australia and UAE. Freeze dried AND spray dried. Communicated with producers from each place. All have been taste tested by our team of Elementz guinea-pigs who range from the ages of 1+ to over 65. The most noticeable benefit we saw were in the kids post-activity (sports) recovery. Their performance improved and they were less exhausted.
Its been a few years of testing and mulling, weighing the pros and cons and the many questions one can think of relating to milk and camels.. We wanted to be absolutely sure before sharing this with you. Aadvik's camel milk powder is the Elementz Choice.
It can taste just like regular milk for some! It is low in fat, lightly milky, ever-so-slightly-salty, with a sweet after-taste.
Nutritional Value of Camel’s Milk
Camel milk is the closest natural substance to human mother's milk.
Camel milk’s nutritional profile is much richer than cow milk and goat milk. It is high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, including: Vitamins A, B. C, D, E, calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron and kalium.
Freeze-dried vs Spray-dried
Spray dried is the most common method for drying milk. It’s fast, and it’s cheap. It also puts the raw product through high processing temperatures and extreme force.. Higher temperatures of spray-drying can result in overall losses in taste, nutritional value, and proteins degeneration.
Freeze drying is a longer, slower process and costs more. But it is also a whole lot gentler and it retains nutritional value better than any other drying method.
Naturally, the Elementz Choice between the two methods is freeze-dried.
Allergies and Intolerances
Camel’s milk contains A2 proteins while most cow’s milk contains A1. A2 is easier to digest for those who have milk intolerance. Generally speaking, A2-containing milk is safer and healthier. Furthermore, camel milk contains higher concentrations of L-lactate, which experts suggest can be the reason why individuals with lactose intolerance are able to easily digest camel milk.
In a study conducted on children with Cow’s Milk Allergy (CMA) using skin prick tests, they did a comparison between reactions to goat’s milk and camel’s milk. Conclusion: Camel’s milk is the safer choice between the two. 18.4% of the children tested positive (had reactions) with camel’s milk vs 63.2% who tested positive (had reactions) to goat’s milk.
