The study was conducted to collect camel milk available nearby Anand-Kheda and Kutchh district and analyse for gross chemical composition. The average total solids (TS) content in camel (Anand and Kheda), camel (Kutchh), cow and buffalo milk was 11.97%, 9.95%, 13.07% and 15.57%, respectively. The average fat content in camel (Anand and Kheda), camel (Kutchh), cow and buffalo milk was 4.43%, 2.90%, 4.68% and 6.38%, respectively. The average solid not fat (SNF) content in camel (Anand and Kheda), camel (Kutchh), cow and buffalo milk was 7.56%, 7.04%, 8.39% and 8.97%, respectively; average protein content in camel (Anand ad Kheda), camel (Kutchh), cow and buffalo milk was 3.00%, 2.66%, 3.32% and 3.87%, respectively. The average lactose content in camel (Anand and Kheda), camel (Kutchh), cow and buffalo milk was 4.25%, 3.77%, 4.42% and 4.70% whereas ash content was 0.71%, 0.84%, 0.68% and 0.69%, respectively.
