By volume yes. They take out the fat to make skimmer milk. Fat has weight and when removed from the milk... it weighs less. * All milk in the Unites States is "Vitamin D" fortified. Whole milk is the one with the most cream, at 3.5% milkfat, and therefore the most fat. However, reduced-fat (2%), light or lowfat (1%), and fat-free milk must all have Vitamin A and Vitamin D added.

What is the difference in 2 percent Milk and Whole Milk?

The percentage is a reference to the fat content of the milk. Whole milk contains usually between 3.25% and 4.0% fat, where as 2% obviously contains 2% fat. Also, in the US 2% milk generally will have more Vitamin A than whole milk. This is because during the fat reduction process, a lot of vitamin A is lost, so it is artificially added back into the milk.

Is soy milk good for children?

Soy milk is very nutritional for children. It actually has more vitamin D, Vitamin b12, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Iron, Calcium, and Riboflavin than Whole (cows) Milk. Soy milk can reduce cholestrol, it contains no lactose, it doesn't contain horomones and it's easier for small bodies to process. Also because it only contains vegetable proteins vs animal proteins, it loses less calcium during processing in the kidneys.

Which is more nutritious for a person - cow's milk or goat's milk?

Compared to cow's milk (3.25% fat) goats milk is higher in the following: Vitamin C Vitamin A Thiamin (V. B1) Niacin (V. B3) Vitamin B6 Vitamin E (slightly) Vitamin K (slightly) Calcium Copper Iron Magnesium Manganese Phosphorus Potassium Sodium Cholestrol Total saturated fatty acids Total monounsaturated fatty acids Total polyunsaturated fatty acids Most amino acids (all except aspartic acid, glutamic acid, glycine, and tryptophan) However, goats milk is lower in the following nutrients: Water Riboflavin (V. B2) Pantothenic Acid (V. B5) Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) Vitamin D Folate Selenium Zinc Lactose Remarkably, when comparing fat content, cow's milk is lower in fat than goats milk, when comparing whole cow's milk to goat's milk, and it is also lower in energy content, carbohydrates, protein, and mineral (as seen above). Goats milk has over 2% more fat than whole milk from cows. So, taking all that into consideration, goat's milk is healthier in terms of getting more vitamins and minerals than cow's milk as well as being good for those people who are lactose intolerant, but less healthy since it is higher in fat and lacking some other important minerals such as Vitamin B12. Check out the tables on the Cornell University site posted below.
