Costly: Camel ice cream might be 'healthier' than varieties from from cow's milk, but it costs £4 a scoop
It has been heralded as a healthy treat, low in fat and containing ten times more iron than cow's milk.
But when ice cream made from camel's milk goes on sale in the UK it could give consumers the hump.
For the expensive dessert, which is already popular in the Middle East, costs a whopping £4 per scoop.
Now the treat is to be marketed as a health food and will be sourced from Europe's only camel dairy farm in The Netherlands, it has been reported.
After being unveiled at a food show in London next month, camel ice cream could will go on sale in the UK.
The wacky dessert is the creation of British business Ginger's Comfort Emporium, a renovated ice cream van 'for grown ups' selling experimentally flavoured ices.
The food company is already selling unusual flavours and recently came up with an Eccles cake ice cream variety.
The company will unveil the camel ice cream at the Experimental Food Society Spectacular show next month.Organiser Alexa Perrin told The Sun: 'Camel milk is very creamy but it has a light texture.
'You can see from how "superfoods" have taken off in Britain that many people want to buy products that are unusual and have been shown to be very good for the body.'
The dessert is thought to have five times the levels of B vitamins than ice cream containing cow's milk, which are which are vital for healthy growth.
Ms Perrin added: 'This years Spectacular will feature over eight and a half thousand square feet of culinary art and offer the first opportunity to sample camel milk ice cream in the UK, a product which will soon be available to purchase more readily throughout the country.’
