2% Milk and all that…
The 2% in 2% milk is a measurement of the fat component by weight – 20 grams per 1 liter is fat.
Cheating to express it that way some consumers say, but we express most other food components in the same way – don’t we? 🙂
Full Cream Milk has about 3.5% fat by weight, so you save about half the calories drinking 2 %.
What you must keep in mind is that 1 liter of full cream milk has about 620 Calories – only about a 5th of what a rather sedentary male of about 175 Pounds needs to maintain his bodyweight! So drinking a liter of milk a day – and I don’t know many people that do that – does not contribute as many calories as people think.
