• Emirates Palace will be making their burgers out of leg cuts from camels, because this meat is leaner than the humps.

• It has a low fat content and is highly nutritious. It is much healthier for you than beef.

• Good news! Their meat can be used to combat hyperacidity, hypertension, pneumonia and respiratory disease.

• Camel meat is similar to beef in the shape and smell, but richer in iron and vitamin C than both beef and lamb.

• It is popular in the Middle East, North Africa and Europe, although it is growing in popularity in Australia and North America.

• Camel meat has been eaten for centuries. It was recorded by ancient Greek writers as an available dish in ancient Persia at banquets, usually roasted whole.

• A restaurant in Alice Springs, Australia, serves camel lasagne.

• Camel blood is drank in Kenya as a source of iron, vitamin D, salts and minerals.
