Ask a Nutrition Expert: Is Whole Milk Better Than Skim?

Not only does whole milk taste better, it is better for you. Skim and low-fat milk have to undergo processing, while whole milk does not. When you are drinking whole milk, you are drinking what has come directly from the cow. Natural is always best. Plus, when fat is removed from skim and low-fat milk, the sugars in milk hit your bloodstream and spike your insulin, putting you at higher risk for diabetes and weight gain.
