Nonfat/Skim or Whole Milk?!

Question: Nonfat/Skim or Whole Milk!?
Which one would be better to drink!? I was told that whole milk supplies a lot of nutrition, but then again, I know that skim milk has lower cholesterol!. Which one is better!?

And is it even true the whole milk does supply a lot of nutrition than the other milk!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

I think skim milk is better!. I know that for infants and younger children whole milk is recommended yet I believe that is mainly for the fat content!. This reason is because they are still growing and they need it!. As one gets older a lighter milk would be best!. Choose 1% or 2% if you still want the full benefit of the vitamens!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

drink 2% milk, its better for youWww@FoodAQ@Com

Skim milk has less than 1% cream which is almost pure fat!. Whole milk has about 4!.5% fat!. Other than fat, skim milk has the same nutrients as whole milk!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

nonfat/skim is best!. It has all the nutrition of whole milk and non of the fat!.Www@FoodAQ@Com


I couldn't stand the taste of milk but when I have skim I can drink itWww@FoodAQ@Com

Serenity is right (if i could give her a thumbs up i would) whole milk has a lot of fat content so it is usually given to infants and toddlers to replace formula!. Skim is the best (might not be the most tasteful since it does taste like it is watered down) but it does have all the nutritions of whole without the fat!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Younger - Whole!.
Older - Skim!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The percentage of milk fat (which is what skim, 2% and whole refer to) has nothing to do with causing cancer!. The cancer link is associated with IGF-1 or insulin-like growth factor 1 found in milk!.

Skim milk in this country has had most of the fat removed; it can contain no more than 1/2 of 1% fat!. A cup (8 ounces; 244 grams) of skim milk contains 86 calories!. Whole milk, by contrast, is about 3-3/4% fat and a cup of has 149 calories!.

The only thing lost in skim milk is the fat not the nutrients!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
