Cowsshutterstock_619957136

Milk is regarded as a complete meal, as it is rich in a wide variety of nutrients such as various vitamins and minerals, fats, protein, and carbohydrates. With so many essential nutrients, it is imperative that we consume milk on a regular basis. It could be a glass of milk at breakfast, at night or any other time of your choice. You can also try various recipes made from milk or consume milk products such as curd, buttermilk, paneer, ghee, etc.

Types of milk

Thanks to technology, you can now choose the right type of milk to suit your specific needs and preferences. Modern dairy farms primarily process three types of milk, namely, full cream milk, toned milk, and double toned milk. Each of these has specific applications and their nutrient content also varies. All three types of milk are healthy choices and you can drink anyone you want. Here’s what you need to know about the different types of milk.

Full cream milk has a fat content of minimum 6 percent and Solids Non-Fat (SNF) of minimum 9 percent. Calorie content per 100 ml of full cream milk is around 87 kcal. It supplies around 3.3 grams of protein per 100 ml, which is quite good for everyday needs. Vitamins and minerals found in full cream milk include thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid, Vitamin A, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, and sodium. Full cream milk tastes great and provides for a satiating experience.

Full cream milk

Toned Milk has fat content of minimum 3 percent and SNF of minimum 8.5 percent. 100 ml of toned milk has 58 kcal and around 3.1 grams of protein. It has most of the essential nutrients, as available in full cream milk. However, the quantity of nutrients may be less, as compared to full cream milk. Toned milk is low in fat, which makes it suitable for people with a sedentary lifestyle such as office professionals, housewives, etc. It is easier to digest and does not create gas or bloating.

Toned Milk

Double toned milk has minimum fat content of 1.5 percent and SNF of minimum 9 percent. 100 ml of double toned milk has around 45 kcal and 3.1 grams of protein. If you have health issues related to fat, double toned milk will be the best option for you. Double toned milk has various vitamins and minerals and it is preferred for making tea, coffee, and other milk-based drinks.

Double toned milk

 

Tea Special Milk: This type of milk has been specially formulated to make tea or coffee. Tea special milk can be used directly to make tea or coffee, without the need to add water. This makes it really useful for folks who may not be adept at finding the right proportion of milk and water. Tea special milk also makes your tea/coffee a lot richer, tastier and flavorful. Nutritional content of tea special milk is quite similar to that of double toned milk, as described above.

Milk has shown to reduce the risk of lifestyle diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Some studies have also shown a reduced risk of certain types of cancers. With so many health benefits, it makes sense to have a glass of milk every day.
