We seldom drink milk now. We let the kids drink buttermilk everyday. And we buy the homo 3.25% milk to make our buttermilk. First of all, if we have a chance we will drink raw milk since it is unpasteurized and unhomogenized which won’t stress our digestive mechanism and is very nutritious. But we don’t since we live in Ontario where the sales of raw milk is illegal. Secondly, skim/1%/2% milk contains powdered skim milk in which cholesterol is oxidize and contains toxic to the nervous system, and actually animal fats is very good for us. Therefore, we have to go for cultured milk, whole milk yoghurt, whole cream, raw cheese. These are more digestible since the fermenting process “partially breaks down lactose and predigests casein”(a milk protein).
