The present investigation was conducted to determine mineral profile of fermented camel milk gariss, which procured from ten different locations from Khartoum state, samples collected from the locations of Khartoum significantly (P< 0.05) higher than that collected from Khartoum north and Omdurman in all minerals investigated in this work except that of Calcium. The minerals content of the farms and markets (retailers) investigated in this work were significantly (P< 0.05) different from each other except the mean of calcium significantly (P< 0.05) not different between farms and markets; farms were higher only in potassium (i.e. potassium content is 236.56 and 221.91 mg/l for farms and Markets, respectively), and lower in Sodium, Magnesium and Phosphorus.
