What kind of dairy is bad or good for you?

Back in August 2019 Full-fat dairy got a tick from Heart Foundation.

This decision was made after evaluating world class research on the topic. Current evidence indicated that milk products are not associated with an increased cardiovascular risk, regardless of their fat content. In fact, a large and strong body of evidence suggests the consumption of dairy foods, including milk, cheese and yogurt, can help to protect cardiovascular health.

However, many of us are still confused on which type of dairy, especially milk is best for us. As we still see low fat products on the shelves. Is it the full fat dairy or the low fat dairy again? The homogised, or unhomogised one. This video guides you towards choosing the better-quality dairy for your family.

Some Nutritional facts about dairy are:

1. Consumption of whole-milk dairy products is on the rise.

2. Comprehensive, independent reviews, concluded that there’s no association between dairy fat or high-fat dairy foods and obesity, type 2 diabetes, or cardio-metabolic risk.

3. The Vitamin D found in diary fat will assist your body in Calcium absorption.

4. The process of milk homogenisation changes the fat molecule shape and that then negatively affects our health.

5. Always choose organic dairy, if you can, because that means less exposure to antibiotics and growth promotants, or hormones.

6. It is safe and normal to consume full fat dairy. Go ahead and change your habits, it will be more tasteful and healthier for you.
