Also question is, is skim milk actually better for you?
Yes, it's lower in fat and calories than whole milk, and marginally higher in calcium, but some experts suggest that the saturated fat in dairy may not be a problem in terms of heart health. In fact, by drinking skimmed we may be missing out on fat-soluble nutrients like vitamins A and E.
Also Know, which milk is better for you? Reduced-fat milk and skim milk have fewer calories and higher amounts of vitamins than whole milk (thanks to fortification). They also have less saturated fat, which has been shown in studies to raise your "bad" cholesterol and put you at a higher risk for heart disease.
what are the benefits of drinking skim milk?
The high levels of potassium found in skimmed milk contributes to normal muscle and nerve function and is important for healthy blood pressure, while magnesium helps your heart, muscles and immune system to function properly. Fortified varities of skimmed milk containing vitamin D and vitamin A are also available.
Does skim milk make you fat?
Not only will low-fat milk fail to trim your gut, it might even make you fatter than if you were to drink whole, according to one large study. In 2005, researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health and other institutions studied the weight and milk consumption of 12,829 kids ages 9 to 14 from across the country.
