I was wondering what people think is wrong with skim milk, if they think something is wrong with it...
I ask because I have read a few posts here, on other topics, and someone may mention something like "of course not skim- I use 1% or 2%"
So is it the idea that vitamin D may not be absorbed because the milk is fat free and D is fat soluble? Because if so I got this reference that says it is still absorbed because the vitamin D actually binds to protiens, not fat.
I am asking because for years I drank AT LEAST 3 glasses a day of skim milk and each glass contained 45% rda of vitamin D and yet at age 50, my spine is -2.6. I am still quite upset about this. I stopped drinking milk after reading internet stories about milk being bad for osteoporosis. But I rather go back to conventional wisdom and start drinking milk again. I have upped my leafy greens and am taking vitamin K2 supplements. I could take a 100mcg Vitamin K2 supplement with every glass of milk...
But I am wondering- maybe I should switch to 2%. If there is a reason to do so. I am very used to skim- 2% tastes too creamy but I am sure I would get used to it.
