  • If you have to choose one - unhomogenized skim milk, or homogenized 1%?

    If you had to choose one of the two.

    Skip both....I would fast. To be honest I never got into the light dairy crap even pre PB.

      Whichever one I can trade down at the market for whole milk.

        If choosing neither were not an option, I would choose the 1%.

          Why do I have to choose one? Because if it's for me, doesn't agree, so I pick neither.

            Honestly, they both make shudder. Fasting would be my choice for sure.

              I'd also skip them both. The cream is the best part, and I wouldn't even do unhomogenized 1%.

                    I would pick the skim, but then I'm so used to drinking skim milk I like the taste. My theory is that those homogenized fats are the part of the milk that has been messed up by processing, so it is better to skip them. Fat is good, but I can get it elsewhere in healthier form. But I'm not sure I am right, because how much does skim milk have added nonfat dry milk which is even more dangerously messed up by processing?

                      This is what I was thinking. Obviously neither is ideal, however is homogenization the only dangerous thing about reduced-fat milk, and if it is not homogenized is it still "bad?"

                        Why Skim Milk Isn't as Healthy as You May Think
                        The article above makes the argument that cholesterol in added nonfat dry milk is oxidized by the drying process. The gallon of skim milk in my refrigerator does not say it contains dry milk.

                        Why Skim Milk Isn't as Healthy as You May Think
                        This article considers the argument against homogenization and also says adding dry milk is no longer standard.

                        My husband and son drink a lot of milk and so we buy skim milk by the gallon from Walmart. It seems to me that just as one should eat lean meat if it isn't grass fed, similarly I would rather avoid the fat if I am going to drink factory farmed milk.
