Nutritional Balance of Skimmed Milk

Authors: Jose D Perezgonzalez

This article offers descriptive data regarding the nutritional balance of skimmed milk. These data were collected for a research on milk and milk alternatives in New Zealand between 2007 and 2008 (Perezgonzalez, 2008). Skimmed milk (including skim, low-fat, and trim milk, as well as fat-free, and super-trim milk) is that containing very little fat (around 0.2%). This article, however, analyzes the nutritional balance of skimmed milk beyond its fat content. Indeed, the average skimmed milk (in this sample) is low in fat and saturated fat, high in protein, adequate in carbohydrate but high in sugar, low in fiber, and high in sodium (for its energetic content). On average, skimmed milk has a nutritional balance of BNI 123.16s, being particularly unbalanced towards excess of sugar.
