View Full Version : "New" skim milk

I noticed that there's a new version of skim milk/fat free milk available in my local grocery store. It's called "Skim Rich" and is supposed to be more like milk with fat content.

I tried it and it does have a more opaque white color and a thicker consistency than the usual watery, slightly blue skim milk...I know a lot of people don't like regular skim milk if they're used to "real" milk.

Anyways, the stuff is really good, especially on cereal or in protein shakes. The added ingredients are carrageenan--a seaweed extract that is used in most ice cream to give it a creamy texture--and cellulose gel (thickening agent). The nutritional content is the same, but the taste and texture is far superior.

If you use skim milk, try this stuff...it costs the same but tastes a whole lot better!

People PAY to have others put seaweed extract into their skim milk?

Mmmm my idea for alcoholic milk doesn't seem that bad now..

You don't really "pay" anything for it...it costs the same as regular milk :p

Even 1/2% tastes like I'm drinking cream. Blech.

I've never seen skim milk with a bluish tint. :scratch: hmmmm. maybe the cows down here in the south don't produce that color. But the milk sometimes has a funky taste every now and then, I think its cause of all the wild onions that grow around here.

But at school I buy milk that tastes the best!!!!! I now go though about a gallon a day. I need to go and get some more milk actually, im out. see yall i'm going to get some white, cool, refreshing, and delicious gallon of skim milk from the local Bi-Lo.
