 However, it has also become a controversial ingredient, with new studies emerging left and right discussing either why skim milk is bad or debating its potential impact on bone strength, heart health and more.

While it's true that skim milk is low in fat and a great source of several nutrients, there are some drawbacks to consider with this dairy product, along with several reasons you may want to opt for whole milk instead.

Keep reading for a few of the top skim milk benefits and disadvantages, plus some simple recommendations for your next shopping trip.

  What Is Skim Milk? 

Take a stroll down the dairy aisle of your local supermarket and you may notice that there are several types of milk available, each of which varies based on its respective fat content.

Whole milk contains the highest amount of fat, with around 3.25 percent milk fat. Meanwhile, low-fat and skim milk are each produced by removing a portion of the fat from whole milk, resulting in a final product that is lower in total fat and calories.

Skim milk, also called nonfat milk, is a type of milk that typically contains 0.5 percent milk fat. Because of its lower fat content, it is also much lower in calories, with just 58 percent of the amount of calories of whole milk in each cup.

Similar to other types of milk, skim milk can be found in several different forms. Skim milk powder, for instance, is produced by removing the water from skim milk, resulting in a product with a much longer shelf-life. Canned, evaporated and sweetened condensed skim milk varieties are also widely available.
