Donkey milk, obtained from female donkeys, provides vitamins, minerals and proteins. It has less fats and calories but more vitamin D and longer shelf life as it does not contain any foodborne pathogens compared to other milk types. It promotes the growth of bacteria and viruses to reduce stomach illnesses and stimulates the release of powerful immune response cells, such as macrophages, natural killer cells, and cytotoxic T cells. Besides this, as it improves blood circulation and prevents the build-up of plaque in the arteries, donkey milk finds extensive applications in the food and beverages (F&B) and cosmetics and personal care industries.

Donkey Milk Market Trends:
At present, there is a rise in the utilization of donkey milk in the food and beverage (F&B) industry for producing cheese, chocolates and cheddar across the globe. This, along with the growing demand for donkey milk among the health-conscious consumers and cardiovascular heart patients as it contains less cholesterol, represents one of the key factors driving the market. Moreover, there is an increase in the consumption of donkey milk by toddlers who have cow milk protein allergies, which is propelling the growth of the market. This can also be accredited to its immunity strengthening properties that help protect toddlers from infections and diseases. In addition, the growing use of donkey milk for fighting malnutrition, especially in developing countries, as it contains micronutrients is positively influencing the market. Besides this, there is an increase in the application of donkey milk in cosmetics, such as creams, soaps and moisturizers, around the world as it contains anti-ageing and healing properties. This, in confluence with the rising focus of individuals on personal grooming, is bolstering the growth of the market.
