milk is an important part of the African diet in those parts of Africa where cattle or camels can be kept. (The tsetse fly and the diseases it spreads has made keeping livestock impossible in many parts of Africa.)



  1. In Eastern Africa, milk is consumed fresh, as soured milk or buttermilk, or made into curdled milk (similar to what is called cottage cheese in the United States). butter is also made and is used to make ghee (a sort of clarified butter) which is used as an oil for frying.
