Milk

Sunday, June 27, 2010

I was trying to talk with y roomates about the diet and way of thinking that I am back on, and was talking about milk. I want to switch back to skim milk, but one other arguement was why, because 2% has more calcium....So, i plugged each type of milk into the nutrition factor page, and it shows that milk has more calories the more fat it has, but i noticed that as it went up in percentage the calcium went down, as well as the sodium....Why is that??

    I'm glad you did that as I have always believed the calcium would be the same and I never bothered to check. However, now that you have presented the facts it becomes obvious there must be calcium in the butterfat, which is pretty much removed in skim milk. Must be same thing with the sodium. So one negative for skim milk BUT two pluses in less sodium and less calories. I will stick with the skim and get my calcium elsewhere.
