What is skimmed milk?

Skimmed Milk is when almost all of the Cream is removed. In the UK, Skimmed Milk is usually about 0.5% Cream.

Contrast this with the natural fat percentages of Milk from Ayrshire Cows, which are in the range of 4.5% – 4.9% depending on the season.

The health benefits of removing the Cream from Milk have been much disputed in recent years. So much so that only reasonable justification for drinking Skimmed Milk would be on taste. As it is the Cream in Milk that carries most of the taste, this is why Mossgiel Organic Farm does not produce Skimmed Milk.
