Abstract : The fatty acid composition is probably linked to one of the health effects attributed to camel milk. In the present paper, the fatty acid compositions of dromedary camel, bactrian camel and hybrids are analysed in Kazakhstan where all these species cohabit. The results confirm the higher quantity of unsaturated fatty acids compared to cow milk. Palmitic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid and miristic acid are the most important part of the camel milk fat. As our sampling method included 3 variation factors (species, season, regions) with not more than one sample per case, only general trends were observed. The milk samples collected in summer, on bactrian camel and in the Caspian region (Atyrau, Aralsk) tend to be richer in long-chain fatty acids. At reverse, the milk samples taken in winter, on hybrids or dromedary and from the southern part of Kazakhstan seem richer in short-chain fatty acids. (Résumé d'auteur)
