View Full Version : Milk and sugar content

I've had a quick search for this but can't find anything about my question.

Basically, everyone states that you should keep away from foods with high sugar content (rightly so) and milk is considered really good when bulking.

However, all the carbs in milk are sugar.

I am trying to bulk and want to drink about 4 pints a day. Is all that sugar good, or am I just misreading the info on the label?

Milk sugar is lactose, which is comprised of glucose and galactose. I don't see the problem, unless you're lactose intolerant. It would be bad if it was all sucrose. Normal table sugar (sucrose) is comprised of glucose and fructose. Fructose is the one you want to avoid large amounts of.

For a little help on the breakdown of sugars, click on Get Built Article #2 and scroll down to question #2.

Look at scarz signature, there is a link to that article on there.

I drink over a gallon a day. Milk makes my stomach happy.

Thanks for the info guys.

I thought the answer might be something like that.

Many thanks.
