The difference between skimmed milk and whole milk lies in the difference of fat index. Ordinary milk, that is, whole milk, has a fat content of about 3%. If whole milk is degreased and the fat content is reduced to less than 0.5%, it will become skimmed milk.
Skim milk is suitable for people with diabetes, high blood lipids and other special groups. Whole milk is suitable for the general population.

Milk is a complete protein food, which plays an important role in the formation and development of brain marrow and nerves. The cholesterol content of milk fat is lower than that of meat and eggs, which has the effect of reducing cholesterol in the body.

Therefore, taking milk has a good therapeutic effect on gastrointestinal ulcer, especially gastric and duodenal ulcer. Frozen milk can constrict blood vessels and stop bleeding from peptic ulcer. The "sour milk" made of milk can protect the human body from and reduce the harm of toxic substances. It can stimulate gastric juice secretion and enhance gastrointestinal digestion.
