Nutrients in milk
Milk is one of the most nutritionally complete foods available on the food market to date.
It is naturally a good provider of a whole range of nutrients essential to growth, development and maintenance of the human body and contains no artificial preservatives or colourings.
Relatively small quantities of milk can provide a significant proportion of daily nutrient requirements for all age groups making it nutrient rich relative to its energy content.
In addition to its contribution to nutrient intake, increased milk consumption has also been linked to reducing the risk of numerous health problems such as osteoporosis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity to name but a few.
Milk therefore makes a significant contribution to the human diet through provision of the macro-nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
