Advantages: Good for you
Semi-skimmed milk was introduced in 1973, it can be a great benefit to us, as it has all the goodness of whole milk, but some of the fat has been taken out. It is ideal for people who want to cut down some of the fat content in their diet.
I first tried semi-skimmed milk about twelve months ago as I wanted to cut out some of the fat in my diet. I wasn’t to keen on it at first because I had been brought up drinking whole milk with that rich creamy flavour, but when your trying to lose weight you have to sacrifice some things in life.
Now I don’t know if it is just me or if it happens to every body who has changed from whole to semi-skimmed. I got used to it after a couple of weeks, and am now hooked on it. If I have whole milk now in my tea, it tastes far to creamy and sickly.
We all know that milk is a nourishing drink on its own, but I am sure we sometimes forget how much we do actually rely on milk, we use it on our breakfast cereals, milkshakes, sauces and to make puddings, the list goes on.
Semi skimmed milk can be frozen. It's best to freeze in small quantities (1 or 2 pints) it does take a long time to thaw out. During freezing the milk can separate and go watery after thawing. When it has defrosted, shake it really well before using it so that the milk is well blended.
Milk has proteins, minerals and a wide range of vitamins. The B12 vitamin which is present in milk can only be found in a natural form if taken from animal products such as meat or milk.
Milk is full of calcium it does in a lot of cases provide up to 40% of our calcium intake. Semi-skimmed and skimmed milk still have all the calcium of whole milk, so which ever one you take you are still getting the same amount of calcium. Calcium as we know is important in helping to keep our bones strong.
Sainsbury’s semi- skimmed milk is a fresh pasteurised milk .
4 pint/ 2.272 litre bottle costs £1
To recognise the semi-skimmed milk look for a large plastic container with a green lid. There is a logo of a tractor on the label stating that this is British farm standard .
These containers take up a lot of space in your dust bin. When you have finished your milk take the lid off, squeeze and flatten the bottle as much as you can and then put the lid back on. It makes it a bit smaller thus using less space.
This information that I am now going to provide may be useless to some people, but I am sure other people who have allergies will be grateful for it.

You should always keep your milk refrigerated and use it within 3 days of purchase, so I would not recommend buying a large container of milk if you are not going to use it within three days.
There is a sell by and a use buy date printed on the container.

On the container you will notice that it says produced in the UK for Sainsbury’s.
I myself think that they could have given the Cow a mention. After
all it is thanks to them, they produced it.
