It is the protein, not the fat.
The protein cooks (coagulates) and forms the film.

It's actually proteins, but it's not enough of a difference to worry about.

I like that. So a few less calories from milk fat

You're simply removing some of the fat.

I like to warm the milk I use in my coffee. I measure it, and put it in a pan on low, and add it to the gradually cooling coffee in my french press a little at a time.

Obviously the milk evaporates, and less water would not change the calorie content. But it also develops a skin, which I spoon off. What creates the skin? What am I removing? Does that have any impact on the protein, fat or calorie content?

Not that it's a big deal, just curious
