ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, March 18 (UPI) -- United Arab Emirates residents will be able to cool themselves down this summer with ice cream made with camel milk, officials said.

Abdullah Saif al-Darmaki, the chief executive officer of the Al Ain Dairy, told Gulfnews.com the company has spent large sums of money to create four camel milk ice cream flavors -- date, saffron, caramel and chocolate.

"We have spent a lot of time creating flavors that we feel are different and most importantly not available in the market … We wanted to do something completely different, which is why we have invested in new technology to produce a range of camel milk ice creams in niche flavors," al-Darmaki said. "We know that there is a demand for this product that we can truly satisfy in an innovative way."

Darmaki also said his company plans to offer new flavors of camel milk, including chocolate, date, saffron, cardamom and rose-flavored milk.

Camel milk is slightly saltier than cow's milk and carries numerous health benefits, Gulfnews.com said.
