The Story Behind Camel Milk Chocolate

The Story Behind Camel Milk Chocolate

Al Nassma is more than the world’s very first camel milk chocolate brand, it symbolises the unique taste of the Arabian world and a quality product we are excited to share with you.

The United Arab Emirates are certainly not short of camels and milk from a camel is proving to have more health benefits than that of your original cow or goats milk.

In fact, camel milk contains five times more Vitamin C than cow milk, less fat, less lactose and more insulin, making it a good option for diabetics and the lactose intolerant.

The company was founded in Dubai back in 2008 and began retailing its products through its farm-attached store, however, due to its exquisite taste and proven health benefits, it has since expanded into new Arab markets, Europe, Japan, United States and Australia. 

It is now found in luxury hotels, resorts and cruise liners, private airlines, shopping malls and duty-free around the world.

The company's products include 70g camel milk chocolate bars in several flavours:

Whole milk, nuts and cocoa 70% (dark)

Arabia (with a mix of Arabian spices such as cardamom and cinnamon)

Macadamia orange and dates

Camel-shaped chocolates

Camel Caravan, with macadamia nut and honey cream filling

Hollow camel figures and various kinds of pralines.


With over 3,000 camels on the Camelicious Farm in Umm Nahad, Dubai, the camels are milked twice daily, providing around 5,000 litres of raw camel milk. A portion of the milk is bottled for sale under the Camelicious label and the remaining is freeze-dried and airlifted to its factory in Austria where the chocolate mass is manufactured. 

Al Nassma makes use of around 150ml of fresh and pasteurised camel milk in one bar of whole milk chocolate and all other ingredients including locally popular spices, nuts and honey are produced with preservatives or chemical additives.
