Milk nutrition

Have you ever wondered how much protein is in milk? Or how much calcium is in cheese or yogurt? Maybe you just want information on the dairy food group itself. If you want to know more about the nutrients in milk, cheese and yogurt, you’ve come to the right place.

Dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt are nutrition powerhouses. We’re not the only ones to think so, either. Health organisations around the world recognise dairy and milk nutrition and that these products contribute many nutrients that are essential for good health. Indeed, the British Dietetic Association says milk and the wider dairy food group are an important part of a healthy, balanced diet and suggest that for many people, cutting them out is likely to do more harm than good.

“Milk and dairy foods are affordable, safe to consume daily, wholesome and a delicious source of essential nutrients.”

British Dietetic Association, 2019
