Does Nonfat Milk Provide the Same Nutrients as Whole Milk?
Does nonfat milk provide the same vitamins and minerals as whole milk? – Jayne
Yes, nonfat milk (also called skim milk and fat-free milk) provides the same vitamins
and minerals as whole milk — with no fat.
Because the fat portion of whole milk does not contain calcium,
you can lose the fat without losing any calcium.
Reduced-fat (2%), low-fat (1%), and nonfat milk have vitamin A and vitamin
D added, since these vitamins are lost when the fat is removed. Natural levels
of vitamin D are low, so most milk producers add vitamin D to whole milk. Check the
