Skim Plus Milk - Fat Free And Tastes Great

Review by Stacey Sciarrino
Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Good taste, readily available, healthier alternative than regular milk.
The Bottom Line: For great tasting milk with zero fat and more protein and calcium than whole milk, try Farmland Special Request Skim Plus Milk.
Milk is a staple in just about every refrigerator. While it is a healthy and nutritious beverage, whole milk is not the best choice if you are watching your weight or trying to cut calories. For the past fifteen years or so, my husband and I have been purchasing Farmland Special Request Skim Plus Milk.

The half-gallon carton is easy to find on store shelves since it has bright purple coloring among the bovine motif, and has a picture of a cow's head on it. The container states that this fat free milk is "100% cows milk" with more protein and calcium than others and Farmland indicates that no hormones or antibiotics are used.
A serving size of Farmland Special Request Skim Plus Milk is one cup and contains no fat, 11 grams of protein and 405 milligrams of calcium, as compared to 8 grams of fat, 8 grams of protein, and 302 milligrams of calcium found in whole milk.
This milk tastes slightly creamier than whole milk if you drink a glass of it, but when used in coffee or cereal, I cannot detect a difference in taste. This is very different from other fat-free milks which often can taste thin or watery.
The price of this milk is a dollar or more than regular milk, but the health benefits are worth it to us. We do not often drink milk by the glass, except occasionally with fresh baked cookies, but more often use it in coffee or a bowl of cereal.
Since only my husband and I drink this milk, and if we only use it in coffee, it sometimes takes a while to finish the half gallon. This is not usually a problem as the expiration date is much farther away than with regular milk. In fact, the carton I have in my refrigerator now has an expiration date of six weeks from now. As long as the container is properly refrigerated, even if the carton is opened, the milk has still been fresh about three weeks after it was first opened, provided the expiration date has not passed.
Since my pediatrician recommends that children should have at least some fat in their milk, my children normally drink low-fat milk. My children like the taste of this milk, and occasionally when we run out of their milk, willingly drink this Farmland product.
Overall, we have been pleased with the taste and quality of Farmland Special Request Skim Plus Milk which is stocked in the supermarkets and convenience stores in my area and is available in quart and half-gallon sizes. A fat free milk that tastes good is worth spending the extra money for.
