  1. Well done Dr Raziq; really there are few information on mare milk.
    In general composition, mare milk is close to the breast milk, but there are differences between both milks in bioactive components. Mare milk containing Beta lactoglobulin and human milk not.
    So regarding to bioactive components, camel milk is closest to the breast milk, specially in anti-microbial agents, lack of allergenic protein and immunoglobulins. Also the lactose of mare milk is high. Vit C concentration as important antioxidant is in high level. I discussed these points in my book on bioactive components of livestock milk.

    • Thanks for your feedback Dr. Teherah. Yes, the information related the mare milk is very rare. It is really very precious milk. I knew from the literature that it is the closest to breast milk. The fermented product Khumis is very good for the stomach. I wish to test and know the taste and impact on myself.
