Skimmed milk

Milk is highly nutritious food that provides nearly all the substances essential for good health in people of all ages. About 4% of whole milk is fat. The fat that separates from milk is cream. Milk which has had the fat or cream removed is called skimmed milk.

Skimmed milk, which may contain 0.5% fat or less, has been a popular beverage for many years. Skimmed milk is as nutritious as whole milk, but contains much less fat and cholesterol than whole milk.

The fat-soluble vitamins – A, D, E and K - are removed with the fat when milk is skimmed. Consequently, they are present in only trace amounts in skimmed milk and in reduced amounts in semi-skimmed milk. Usually this milk is fortified with vitamins A and D.
