It’s been labelled the new superfood cure all – a “white gold” fixing everything from autism to cancer and everything in between.
On tonight’s Sunday Night journalist PJ Madam reported on the supposed life-changing benefits of drinking camel’s milk.
Earlier this year, Mamamia Editor-in-Chief Jamila Rizvi wrote for MM’s sister site, The Glow about the camel milk trend.
Here’s what Jam had to say back in August when camel milk was being touted as the next big thing.
She isn’t buying it. Literally.
Well, the superfood people apparently didn’t get that joke.
Because this morning I was greeted with the news that camel milk is soon to be a thing in Australia. That’s right, the health conscious among us are no longer content with the 42 varieties of milk already available at the supermarket. They’re adding a new player into the “I eat cleaner than you ever could” race: the humped beverage variety.
For the uninformed – who are still adjusting their minds to the fact that milk apparently comes out of almonds now – let me enlighten you. Camel milk is a health tonic that has been used by nomads in Africa, the Middle East and South Asia. It is apparently very rich in nutrients, is beloved by its devotees for being a ‘pure nectar’, helps cure all manner of illnesses (Diabetes? GONE. Autism? ELIMINATED. Ebola? CURED.), is high in vitamin C and tends to be a little bit salty.
