Introduction and description

Milk is covered under the more generic heading of Dairy products, as butter, cheese, cream and milk all derive from the same source, however, it may be helpful to see the specific nutrient content of milk.  The following table describes straightforward milk from the cow - not skimmed, semi skimmed, no vitamins added, not powdered or processed - or all the other things we do to milk these days.  The Americans call this 'producer' milk.
