Subject: Re: Milk: Whole milk 4%,low fat milk 1-2% fat!


There is often confusion concerning the fat content of milk. The label

ratings are in terms of weight, not calories. Whole milk @3.3% fat has

150 calories, 8 gm of fat. 8 gm of fat =72 calories making whole milk

actually 48% fat by calories! Definitely a high fat food!
