Kazakhstan is a country in the heart of Eurasia. This freeze dried milk is from a German-Kazakh project which started in 2015. This milk is produced using very specific German technology to produce a freeze dried product from lactating camels, which are not often considered in the American scheme of things. This type of milk has an envious history in human nourishment.
SAUBOTA, meaning “healthy camel calf,” is camel’s milk produced using somewhat the same technology but a different animal raised on the same pasture as the mares. This is in the region of KARAGANDA, in the very center of the continent. Mares are difficult to milk, but camels are nearly impossible–yet it is done. Both animals are on natural pasture all year long--green during the wet months--otherwise dry pasture, but not fed anything other than natural steppe pasture. Like mare’s milk, fresh camel’s milk is pasteurized, frozen and then freeze dried.
Camels (curiously, I have not found a word that is used for the female camel like mare is for horses) are a North American mammal. They originated during the Pleistocene epoch, a period 40 million years ago, on the North American continent. Then, about the size of a rabbit, they continually evolved and migrated to where we see them now–the deserts of the Middle East and Asia. They disappeared from their origin. New World Camelids are found in South America, at the vertiginous heights of the Andes mountains. They are the Vicuña, Llama, Alpaca, and Guanaco.
So what does this milk taste like? It dissolves very easily in tepid water, just about body temperature, and does not like being made very much ahead of consumption. Two hundred ml of water is enough to dissolve three tablespoons of the dried milk. I would recommend making the amount of milk necessary and then cooling it, if necessary, and drinking it or using it. It does not stand up to being kept more than 12 hours after dissolving. The taste: camel’s milk is opaque white, and has a slightly fresh grass scent of good milk. The milk body is pleasant and not at all sticky or thick. The flavor is fragrant, soft, and very pleasing. Much more so than the sometimes “chalky” taste of cow’s milk.
