Mare milk

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Milking of mare in Kyrgyzstan.

Mare milk is a milk secreted by female horses, known as mares, during lactation to feed their foals. Mare milk is particularly rich in whey protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin C.[1] The beverage kumis is traditionally made from mare milk.

Powdered mare milk is available in several European countries, such as Germany, France and Italy.[1] Also freeze dried production of horse milk powder started in Kazakhstan.[2]
