Donkey milk producer Eurolactis Italia Srl is seeing a growing demand for bulk donkey milk powder for the nutrition industry as well as for a raw cosmetic ingredient, mainly from soap manufacturers.
Donkey milk is rich in vitamin E, amino acids, vitamins A, B1, B6, C, D, E, and well balanced in omega 3 and 6, the company says. It is reputed to contain a natural antimicrobial enzyme.
The company has been manufacturing and selling donkey milk freeze-dried powder since 2010 and is now expanding its milk collection network in Italy.
