This article offers descriptive data regarding the nutritional balance of standard milk. These data were collected for a research on milk and milk alternatives in New Zealand between 2007 and 2008 (Perezgonzalez, 2008). Standard (whole or full cream) milk is defined as that containing around 3.5% fat. This article, however, analyzes the nutritional balance of standard milk beyond its fat content. Indeed, the average standard milk is high in fat and saturated fat, but also adequate in protein, low in carbohydrate but high in sugar, low in fiber, and within maximum recommended limits for sodium. On average, standard milk has a nutritional balance of BNI 86.80s, being particularly unbalanced towards excess of sugar.
