Low Fat Milk

Is 2 percent milk fattening?

The easy answer is, No, 2% milk is NOT fattening. 2% milk is 98% fat free. Whole milk is only 3 to 3.5% fat (depending on brand), or 96.5 to 97% fat free.

If you were to buy anything else at the grocery store and it was labeled 97% fat free, you'd know it was very low in fat. Milk is no different.

An avocado is 14% fat.

Almonds are 49% fat.

Hot Dogs are 25% fat.

Peanut Butter is 25% fat.

If you're looking to reduce your fat intake, you should look somewhere else besides milk. You have to drink nearly a quart of whole milk (4 cups) to get an ounce of fat.

Can you make whip cream out of 2 percent milk?

No, you need at least around 30% cream (milkfat), to be able to whip it. This usually means you need at least a light whipping cream, although most will prefer heavy whipping cream, as it's more reliable and stable. It is possible for certain light creams (not whipping cream) to have enough fat to whip, but they usually fall in at around 20% fat.

Will drinking 2 percent milk every day cause weight gain if you are trying to diet?

A collection of opinions from s.com contributors:

  • Drinking 2 percent milk everyday will not cause weight gain. It is very healthy to drink a cup of any milk everyday. The 2 percent milk has the upside of less fat but still contains calcium.
  • No, it will not cause weight gain. I have been dieting for two weeks now, and have been drinking one glass of milk a day before bed. I have lost over 10 pounds. I have not increased my exercise, but I have reduced my portion size at meals, and I have stopped snacking too. Milk has increased my metabolism.
  • You need calcium to maintain a healthy body and bones and milk is an excellent source of calcium. Two percent is a better choice than whole milk. One percent milk is even a better choice than 2% milk. What causes weight gain is not the milk itself, but too many calories going in our bodies and not enough being used or burned up. Every pound of body fat is equal to 3,500 calories stored in our bodies. And these are calories from all the excess food we take in, not just 2% milk.

How many calories in a low fat milk cafe latte?

A low fat milk latte for a 'standard' count is usually around 140.

8oz of low fat milk is around 110 calories, and medium sizes are usually 16oz.

All a latte is, is steamed milk and espresso, which is 0 calories by itself. All you're counting for, is the milk and any other calorie-additives you might include (syrups/flavoring, sugar, etc)

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 whole milk or 2 percent milk healthier?

It depends who you are. If you are not giving your infant (6 months to 2 years) breast or follow-on milk they need the calories that whole milk provides. After that it is really a matter of personal preference unless there is a necessity for fat/calorie reduction, and that goes for adults as well as children.

What is the difference between 1 percent and 2 percent milk?

The percent refers to the percent milkfat. So 2% milk is two percent milk fat and 1 percent milk is 1 percent milkfat. So there's a difference of 1 percent milkfat between the two. That might not sound like a huge difference, but it really is. Consuming 3 cups of 2% milk a day to get your RDA of calcium will mean you've already consumed 50% of your recommended saturated fat! Your best option is actually skim milk. It might take some getting used to, but it's better for your health in the long-run.

Does vitamin d milk weigh more than low fat milk?

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.
