Anyone try Camel milk yet?

I understand this is a hard to find yet popular product.
Raw camel's milk, and also camel milk cheese.
Amish farmers in the Bethlehem/Allentown area are selling it at this time.

From web sources:
Tasting slightly more salty than cows' milk,
but with three times the vitamin C and up to 10 times the iron content,
camel's milk is touted as a powerful tonic against many diseases and as an aphrodisiac.


Camel's milk is the closest milk to human mother's milk. Our bodies not only tolorate it well, our bodies thrive on it.
Camel's milk has triple the amount of vitamin C found in cows milk.
Camel's milk has TEN TIMES the amount of antibacterial and antiviral properties found in cow's milk.
Camel's milk contains an insulin like protein that survives the digestive tract and may benefit people with certain forms of diabetes.

I'm in the process of finding a supplier. Anyone have any experience with this milk?
