Cream. Fat. Cream separates from milk when cool milk is able to sit for some time. The milk from Samburu herds of small Boran/Samburu cows is much less fatty than milk from European cows and may require even four or five days to fully separate [check fact]. This is only possible in the cooler climate of the Samburu highlands around Maralal. If separation occurs, it will be in the relatively early stages of the milk turning into a yoghurt-like product [Maa term]. Also refers to fat.

[Query. Does this refer to all fats? What about liquid fats, like corn oil, margarine?]
