 fairlife milk vs organic valley fat free skim milk


How does your milk FAIR? 

Perhaps as a result of the fat-free craze of the 90’s, the term “skim” is still associated with being lighter, good-for-your-waistline—think of all of the people who order Skinny Vanilla Lattes at Starbucks, which are 120 calories a pop. While skim milk is certainly a healthier option than whole milk because the fat has been, well, skimmed out, this doesn’t mean, by any stretch of the imagination, that it’s a free food. 

Milk, whether it’s 1%, 2% skim or whole, contains carbohydrates–and as any F-Factor devotee knows, when carbohydrates are consumed in excess of what the body can store for energy, they lead to weight gain. Translation: skim will not always help you to stay so trim! In fact, 1 cup of Organic Valley Skim Milk contains 12g of carbohydratesall of which are sugar. That’s more sugar than an entire Krispy Kreme donut (or a McDonald’s Big Mac, if you’re more into savory comparisons) in just one measly cup. Forget skim, that’s GRIM!

If you happen to be a Skinny Latte-lover, there’s no need to moo-urne this vice. Recent innovations in the milk market have really shaken things up, and today we’re here to introduce you to one that, when it comes to your diet, is much more fairMOOOve on over, Organic Valley! F-Factor Fans, it’s time that you meet Fairlife.

Fairlife is able to achieve these staggering nutritional stats by filtering their milk into five components–water, butterfat, protein, vitamins, minerals, and lactose. These are then recombined in different proportions, which effectively cuts carbohydrates and sugar and ups the protein and calcium. Ta-da! Why had no one thought of this before!?

If you’re reading this thinking, well that’s cool, but as a lactose-intolerant individual, even the word milk gives me a stomach ache, well, you’re in luck too, because the filtration process results in a product that’s also free of lactose! Talk about milking, well, milk, for all it’s got!
