Ramadan & Camel Milk

What is Ramadan?

What are the health benefits of camel milk during fasting?

Ramadan is during the 9th month of the Muslim year, and it is an extraordinarily important time for followers of Islam. 

For Muslims across the world, Ramadan is a time to fast, reflect, and pursue spiritual growth. It's a special opportunity to connect with family, and for some, it's a chance to enjoy traditional foods and drinks!

During the entire month of Ramadan, participants fast from sunrise to sunset.

This means, for those who are physically able, they will not eat OR drink during daylight hours. It is something that is incredibly challenging, but makes meals with family and friends all-the-more special.

“Ramadan is special to me because it brings the best out of me. It is a time where I am more consciously aware of God and I begin to ponder on why he put us on this earth. It makes me sympathize with people that are starving or don’t have that luxury of having a meal every single day” - M. A., Camel Culture Customer   

Fasting is broken at sunset with a meal called Iftar. Iftar typically consists of families gathering in the home together or occasions of meeting together at the local mosque.

This breaking of fast often includes a variety of foods and drinks such as dates and yes -even camel milk!

Fasting Sustained by Camel Milk 

In some countries, such as Somalia, Sudan, and Saudi Arabia, camel milk is a popular drink during Ramadan. It's often served at Iftar and Suhoor (the early morning meal before fast resumes).

3 reasons why camel milk is an important food during Ramadan:

1. Provides Hydration & Nutrition

With high levels of electrolytes and minerals that help to regulate fluid balance in the body, it’s an ideal beverage for those who need to stay hydrated during the day.

It is a natural thirst quencher and a valuable source of nutrition!

2. Aids Digestion

Another reason behind camel milk's popularity during Ramadan is its ability to aid in digestion. Fasting can sometimes cause digestive issues such as constipation or bloating.

Camel milk is a natural probiotic, meaning it contains beneficial bacteria that can help to improve digestion and reduce these symptoms! 

3. Honored Tradition

Camel milk also holds cultural and religious significance for some Muslim communities. In Islam, camels are considered to be a symbol of generosity, and camel milk is sometimes referred to as a “blessed” drink.

While not all Muslims consume camel milk during Ramadan, it is an important part of the cultural and culinary heritage of some Muslim communities.

An image of a camel is displayed with a quote from Mohammad Daoud that reads: “Camel milk has a high level of protein and additional nutrients, it’s an excellent beverage to consume during Sohour, the meal taken prior to sunrise for Muslims fasting during Ramadan.”
