    I presume that is 'full milk' then - just ordinary cows with no fat skimmed off?

    You don't understand!...that is a very common response from Milk drinkers.

    I think full milk would be the milk called old fashioned milk with a fat content of 4-5 %.

    In Sweden milk is usually sold in 3 classes. Standard with 3 % fat and a red carton, middle milk 1,5 % green carton and light milk 0,5 % blue carton.
    Beer have a similar classification class I or light beer 2,25 % alcohol, class II or peoples beer 2,8 or 3,5 % alcohol. Everything over 3,5 % is class III or strong beer.

    Thanks. It seems odd to me that 'standard' is the name for milk that's been altered from its 'standard' format, the usual stuff from the cow - but perhaps 'standard' doesn't have exactly the same meaning in Sweden.

    Sorry I based the poll choices on milk that's available in the UK rather than seeing the bigger global picture.

    Standard means as the milk that is reference milk it is the milk that is sold simply as milk it came during WWII the fat content was lowered during to give room for more cream and butter. Difficult to import when all ships are at risk going on a mine or be torpedoed.

    That makes sense - interesting history, too.

    I do believe that a human milk bank is on the cards so you will be OK

    I went on to semi-skimmed a few years ago and now I'm intolerant to full fat milk. I can take ice cream and fresh cream cakes with no ill effects and I can eat cheese to a band playing but if I inadvertently imbibe full fat milk I'll be losing it in about two minutes!! Weird!

    Camel milk is highly touted by its fans and is produced a bit south of where I live. Unfortunately, it costs $32 a quart.

    Whole milk? That's for calves and babies. Who needs all that fat?

    all the vitamins are in the fat.

    If anything there's too little fat in whole milk from supermarkets. Anyway, it's homogenised and that is not good for anyone, not the fat by itself. The over processing of food is the problem as I see it.
