Low-fat dairy contains all the nutrients found in full-fat dairy except for the fat! When fat is reduced or completely removed from milk, laban/yogurt, labneh, and cheese, the essential nutrients such as calcium, phosphorous, proteins, and vitamins A and B vitamins in these products remain the same, only the fat content is affected.
It’s beneficial for heart health and overall health to choose low-fat or skimmed milk and dairy. Why? Because the type of fat in full-fat dairy is saturated fat “unhealthy fat” which can increase LDL “bad” cholesterol in the blood.
Not only that, low-fat dairy contains less calories and thus helps maintain a healthy body weight.
