OK, been thinking about this for a while and recent posts have brought it back to me. I hope I am not going to offend anyone, and don't know if anyone else has commented, but watering down full fat milk does not result in the equivalent of semi-skimmed.
If people like it that way, that's fine, and I don't mean to preach, but I just want people to be aware that it doesn't provide the nutritional value that is expected, particularly for children, nursing mothers (sorry don't mean to pick on anyone) and the elderly.
To get the calorie content to be equivalent to SS it would need to be diluted by about one third, but to get the fat content equivalent to SS (I think the main reason why people buy SS) it would need diluting by over a half, to about 45% FF to 55% water, reducing other valuable components as well.
Milk is such a good source of calcium, protein and phosphorus that it is a shame (IMHO) to miss out and have to supplement these in other ways, especially if you are not aware of the need to do it.
I buy FF for DH and DS, because they like it, and SS for me and DD because it is better for us. I am concerned that we all get enough calcium and phosphorus (both needed to produce sufficient bone mass) because I developed osteoporosis in my 30's and had a fractured vertebra when giving birth to my son, so apologies if i am a bit intense about it. Also been up since half past 3 to drop DS at school for a trip to Wimbledon. Got to go to work now too.
Spent only 2 pounds since Sunday, one pineapple and some growing basil.
Zzzzz (I think I may need the catnap at lunch time)
