Whole or 2% Milk?

    I grew up with my grandparents owning a dairy farm so I always had what is called raw milk. It was filtered and cooled and delicious. Since leaving I can only drink whole milk because anything less just tastes like white water.

    So, my question is: what do you drink and have you ever even tried whole milk? Have you ever tried raw milk?

    I grew up on raw milk also, but now am down to 1%. I no longer drink the stuff (yes it tastes like water!) but whole milk now practically tastes like cream. I only use it in cooking and on cereals.

    I'm pretty lactose intolerant, so I don't drink much milk despite loving it. When I do have some it's 2%.

    Dairy Milk is meant for calves. Drink soy-milk.

    I only use skim milk when bulking. I eliminate dairy when I cut.

    It's funny how your tastebuds become acclimated. I used to drink whole milk but eventually transitioned to non-fat.

    I understand the comments about non-whole tasting like 'white water', but now to me, whole milk tastes like drinking cream. Guess it's all relative. icon_smile.gif

    I'm from The Sandhills of Nebraska, and if it has to do with cattle, I've been there.

    Milk is very high in saturated fat, and, in many folks, lactose intolerance develops as you grow older. Milk can be hard to digest, too.

    Milk, at 3.7% milk fat, which is considered "producer milk", has 8.93 grams of fat per 244g (1 cup). In that same cup, there are 8 grams of protein and 11.35 grams of carbs. Of the fat, .34 is poly, and 2.59 is mono, 6 grams being saturated fat (promotes heart disease).

    Milk really isn't a very good choice for many.

    A McDonald's small order of fries has only 1.4 grams of saturated fat, in contrast.

    Bud- Try Lactaid lactose-free WHOLE milk. Tastes just like the real deal and the frig life is a LOT longer than regular milk. Works for me!icon_smile.gif

    I'm in the minority here. I love whole milk and its the only one I'll drink. I tried for years to drink skim and 1% milk, but it sucks. It tasted like murky water. You all can say you "got used to it," but that sure don't mean it tastes good. Blech! Ack!

    Wait a gosh darned minute...you're talking about whole milks only

    Skim milk is virtually fat free hence it is also cholesterol free as well

    All milk processed at a dairy is first skimmed to remove all of the butterfat. It doesn't come out of the cows in percentages because they vary. That butterfat is then re-introduced into the milks to make a consistent product.. ie 3%, 2% 1% but the skim milk has none of it put back in.

    Why isn't soy a good choice?
    I bought some once to try it but didn't care for the taste
