Does anyone drink skim MILK - what brand are you buying?

Can you taste a difference between the popular brands - Lactantia, Natrel, Neilson, et al?

Do you have a brand preference?

Thanks in advance

  1. I don't drink the milk anymore, but if it's 0%, I'm going to pick the Lactancia Purfiltre one. I've found it's creamier while still being low-fat.

    1. I will drink any of them, but when I was pregnant and had a more sensitive palette, I strongly prefered neilson. It just tasted 'cleaner'.

      1. Try Kawartha Dairies skim milk if you can get it in your area ... I have tried them all and think it is by far the best tasting.

                That`s my approach...I can`t really taste the difference and refuse to pay big bucks...

                  i never worry about the cheapest, and for freshest at look for the furthest expiry date....i still end up throwing some out as we don't drink that much at home. Natrel seems to have a long life and that is why we buy it.
