'If you have cow milk allergy or intolerance, camel milk is a great option since it lacks the A1 casein protein and lactoglobulin, found in cow milk,' he said.
First group is called the main proteins which include Casein and two types of Whey proteins called a Lactalbumin and ss Lactoglobulin. The second group called minor proteins including Lactoferrin, Immunoglobulins Lactoperoxidase and Lysozyme.

Besides the decreased volume of milk produced as a result of mastitis [14], the physical and chemical composition of milk changes, such as, the casein, major protein, decreases as a consequence of infection and the whey proteins (lactalbumin and lactoglobulin) are increased by augmented vascular permeability, reduces the stability of the milk to heat by coagulation or flocculation during pasteurization and ultrapasteurization processes, also there is a decreased calcium in milk; factors affecting milk yield in the production of cheese [12], potassium predominant mineral in milk, declines and the concentrations of sodium and chloride ions rise and increases the electrical conductivity.
The DBPC challenge for CM was similar with patients being administered capsules containing casein, lactoalbumin and lactoglobulin at least 4 weeks before or after the wheat challenge, while the patients were still on the elimination diet and were asymptomatic.

Antibodies to food components, such as ovalbumin from hen's eggs or beta lactoglobulin from cow's milk, can be found in most people, but they are not the sort of antibodies that cause allergic reactions.
For example, cow's milk contains many proteins: in particular casein (in a few isoforms), lactalbumin and lactoglobulin. Egg white also contains many different proteins--ovalbumin (about half the protein content), ovotransferrin, ovomucoid, lysozyme and more minor proteins.
