Sweeteners Health implications Milk is high in nutrients such as calcium, vitamin B2, phosphorous, magnesium, vitamin B12 and a useful source of the mineral iodine. Read more about the best sources of calcium and how to build strong bones. Pregnant, post-menopausal women and older adults may need more. In general, we are led to believe that we do not obtain sufficient calcium if we do not consume milk and dairy produce. If you are following a dairy-free diet, try to ensure it is nutrient dense and full of whole foods. Speak to your GP if you suspect you may be at risk of nutritional deficiency including calcium deficiency. Iodine In the UK, milk and dairy products are one of the main sources of iodine. A low intake of iodine over an extended period may make your thyroid, which governs your metabolism, work harder. Those most at risk of milk iodine deficiency are school-age girls and pregnant women. Alternative food sources of iodine include fish, especially white fish, and seafood. Seaweed is a concentrated source, but it can provide excessive amounts so restrict it to no more than once a week, especially during pregnancy. The importance of vitamin D Osteoporosis is a condition that weakens bones, making them fragile and more likely to break. Alongside calcium, vitamin D plays a central role in the condition and strength of bones. The two nutrients work together; we need vitamin D to absorb calcium. Vitamin D helps the body transport calcium to the bones making them strong. Sunlight helps the body naturally synthesise vitamin D. It is recommended that we aim for minutes of exposure to sunlight to support vitamin D production, thereafter, be sure to apply sun protection. When sunlight is scarce, opt for sources of dietary vitamin D found in oily fish, eggs, liver and fortified cereals. In the UK, cows' milk is generally not a good source of vitamin D because it isn't fortified, as it is in some other countries. Speak to your GP if you suspect you may be at risk of nutritional deficiency. Myths There are many myths surrounding milk and the consumption of dairy products. Lowering the fat content does not affect the calcium level. It is also a common myth that eggs fall into the dairy category. This is also untrue; eggs are not a dairy product. Live yogurts can sometimes be tolerated by people with lactose intolerance. This is because the bacterial cultures used in making yogurt start to break down and reduce the amount of lactose present. Things to watch out for It is advisable to read the labels on everything you plan to eat and create a 'safe' foods list.
