I have been drinking almond milk, but I need more protein because I am trying to build muscle, and 1 g protein per cup is just not enough for me. Plus, I have missed the taste of regular milk, so I decided to get skim because it has more protein, with 8 grams per cup and no fat. The carb count, however, is 12 g per cup all from sugar. I have heard from several people that it is good sugars and the same amount say it is bad. Could someone please clear this up for me?

Absolutely.

It is not natural sugar, it is added so that the skimmed milk is palatable.

Have you considered switching to an organic soymilk, or bonsoy? They have at most 7g of sugar per serve, and about the same protein as milk.

Good luck!

Fixed quote -

Edit: Perhaps if you're lactose intolerant. Or if you have diabetes... But if you're healthy and eating at a calorie deficit, trying to lose weight, the sugar present in skim milk is not bad for you at all.

agree with sublog.

Stick to you're cal/macro target. Do not worry about sugar unless you're diabetic. (Try to get majority of foods from whole food sources but 10-20% from treats can still work just fine)

^^this

Also while getting it from foods is better - if you really want to up your protein and are having problems getting it from 'real food' try whey protein powder

Deadly it is, like a silent fart. It'll getcha when you least suspect it. It has been known to snatch babies from their cribs in the night in South America.

Didn't you know that? They also add the blue tint to it, making your brain think it's going to be eating blueberries. It's the Bilderbergers that are behind it.

This is not true. Don't listen to this person.

The sugar found in skim milk is the same sugar found in all milk. There's more in skim milk because the fat has been removed.

It's healthier than Almond Milk which is generally full of additives.

This is the correct answer. Nothing special about almond milk at all. Drink the real stuff.

Why would she switch to soymilk if it's the skimming process that's the problem? Hint: It's not. Lactose is a naturally occurring sugar.

Good gravy. Nobody adds sugar to milk to make skim milk more palatable :( Where in the world do you get this info? It is absolutely wrong.

The sugar in milk is lactose. It occurs naturally. Humans produce it in there milk too.

As for whether it's good or bad... that depends on whether you're lactose intolerant. If you don't have a lactose intolerance, drink up! Assuming you like milk, that is. Otherwise, there are plenty of healthy alternatives.

I put sugar on a piece of corn and it started yelling racial slurs at my microwave. The microwave got deeply offended and refused to cook anything. I ended up drinking my sorrows away with an armless guy named Phil.

Omg! I was not expecting such a huge debate when I clicked this thread! I vote skim milk is good!

I guess that depends on the milk. Some milk has added sugar in it, others don't. It doesn't necessarily have to be organic to not have added sugar, just check the ingredients...

I have never seen sugar added to a milk other than flavored milk, such as strawberry, chocolate.

LOL, sugar is not added to plain milk, of any kind! Unless you are adding it yourself? huh
