When it comes to milk there are plenty of choices to choose from. Whether it’s a richer tasting whole milk, a fortified skim milk, or healthier skim milk. Together we’ll be going over not only the differences between 2%, 1%, and whole milk but we will also be going over the benefits and which one is best for the average family.
2% milk a version of skim milk, but still has more milkfat than skim. It contains 10 grams of protein making it a strong runner-up among families and is almost as popular as whole milk. This percentage of milk is best for people who want to diet but also taste the same great luxury of whole milk.
1% milk is the best type of milk for the dieting type. It has less milk fat than skim and 1% and is rich in vitamins and minerals. This milk may be costly and not taste as great as 2% or whole but is worth it if you’re trying to lose a few pounds.
Whole milk is the unhealthiest type of milk to drink due to its high amount milk fat which is at 3.5%. However, its unusually creamy and smooth taste makes it a very popular drink among the average family. Most mothers feed their children whole milk after breastfeeding until they reach the age of 2. So a great choice for spending on a budget, but not the healthiest option.
The most popular milk is 1% among the modern family. However, it really depends on what kind of family you have. For example, if you have a family that is working on dieting you would go with 1% due to its low content of milk fat. And if you’re a family that wants a drink that makes you fuller you would go with whole milk due to its high concentration of milk fat.
For my family I always try to go with 2%, I always try to stick to the middle milk. A healthy 1% milk. Still a healthy option due to its low milk fat but still has a great rich taste due to its similarities to whole milk.
