Milk Nutrition Facts

The calories in milk and the cholesterol increase as the number of fat grams increase.

Higher fat milk also has higher amounts of saturated fat...the fat that raises cholesterol.

The amount of protein, carbohydrates and calcium are fairly similar in most types of dairy milk. Different amounts of fat are what make each type of milk "unique."

Milk Nutritional Information

Here's something you may not know. "Conventionally" produced dairy products (including milk) contain:

  • Antibiotic residues
  • Herbicides and pesticides from feed
  • Hormones used to increase milk production
These residues are concentrated in the fat. When you drink milk that has fat in it, you're also unknowingly gulping down these unhealthy additions.

What to do?

Purchase skim milk (fat free milk).

Or buy organic milk if you want to drink milk that has fat in it (1%, 2%, or whole milk).
