Drink milk today and you will thank yourself for it in the future!
Since childhood, our elders and, especially our mothers, have been explaining why drinking milk is necessary. Whether you appreciate the taste of milk or not, it is undeniable that milk carries significant nutritional value and its regular consumption can save you from malnutrition.
Some people might be allergic to the lactose content present in milk. However, those not allergic can benefit from the consumption of lean and low-fat versions of cow’s milk. It’s indeed a good idea to replace artificial supplements with a warm glass of milk every day.

A cup, about 240 ml of cow’s milk, has 150 calories, of which 88% is water, 11.7 grams of carbs, 8 grams of fat, 12.3 grams of sugar, 7.7 grams of protein, and 0% fiber.
Milk is known to have a significant component of water-soluble and water-insoluble proteins. The insoluble casein protein enhances the absorption of calcium and other minerals in the body whereas soluble whey protein is helpful in muscle growth and maintenance. Therefore, it is highly recommended by dieticians to those who indulge in physical activities.
The natural milk that comes straight from the cow contains 4% of fat. It is later processed for reducing the fat concentration up to different levels to maintain the variation in saturation. In some countries, low-fat milk contains 1% fat, reduced-fat milk contains 2% fat, and whole milk has 3.25% fat which is quite steep than the actual fat composition in natural milk.

Milk is undoubtedly the most beneficial food for the human body, but many people can’t digest pure milk. Therefore, natural milk is always processed before pasteurization or homogenization.
