5 Benefits of Whole Milk Which You Didn’t Know

Posted last July 13, 2017, 7:47 am in Health report article

India is one of the largest consumers and producers of milk in the world. Milk products have been consumed for centuries and are considered to be the primary source of nutrition. They contain many nutrients which are extremely beneficial for the human body. They also provide calcium, vitamin, protein, etc. Today, there are many variants of these products. With a great shift towards consuming everything ‘low-fat’ or ‘fat-free’, dairy byproducts have also undergone tremendous changes. The basic product i.e. milk is also available in four different types- Whole, toned, double toned and skimmed which basically means full fat, reduced fat, low-fat and fat-free respectively.

   The same is applied to all other products. Low-fat buttermilk, cream, yogurt, etc, everything is available today. However, the big question remains the same: are fat removed or low-fat products, as we call them, good for health.


Let’s see why the whole and low-fat products are different:


Whole vs low-fat dairy products:

Except for the fat content, no other nutrient content is different in the two products. Whichever variant you choose, it is going to provide you with almost same health benefits. Your body needs every nutrient in the right amount, every day.

Cutting off fats from your daily diet may harm your body in an unwanted way. Fats are responsible for building up your muscle mass.

However, if you are consuming enough fats from the other meals of the day, you might consider switching to skimmed products. No variant is actually better than other. All the types cater to some benefit. You have to choose your dairy byproduct according to your needs.

Some of the many low-fat products are Slim ‘n’ Trim milk, Go Double Toned Milk, Amul Masti Chaas, Go Spiced Buttermilk, Amul Fresh Cream, Go Fresh Cream, Epigamia Yogurt. Let’s take a look at the health benefits of these low-fat products:

Fat content:

Regardless of whether you choose to skim, skimmed or full cream milk, you’ll reap nutritional benefits from all. They are all rich in vitamin D, vitamin A, calcium, phosphorous, riboflavin (vitamin B2) and vitamin B-12. All kinds of milk are also a great source of high-quality protein” says  Robbie Clarke, dietitian and sports nutritionist.
