A new milk available in Woolworths helps reduce your sugar intake by 1.7kg per year

This Supermarket Swap That Will Cut 4 Pounds (and 400 Teaspoons) Of Sugar From Your Diet, And You Might Be Surprised

  • Data shows Australians want to cut sugar from their diet, but don’t know how
  • Choosing a different milk can reduce your sugar intake by 1.7kg a year
  • The Australian company ReMilk has developed a dairy milk that contains less sugar
  • A box retails for $3.20 and can be purchased at select Woolworths stores.

Changing the type of cow’s milk you consume could help reduce your sugar intake by 1.7 kg per year, which is equivalent to 400 teaspoons.

Milk is a household staple for millions of Australians, although few realize that the dairy product can be high in refined sugars.

Research conducted by Nature and commissioned by ReMilk shows that two in three (65 per cent) of Australians want to reduce the amount of sugar in their diet; however, 62 percent of us don’t know that cow’s milk contains natural sugar.

To provide health-conscious customers with a suitable alternative, the Australian company ReMilk has produced a dairy milk that contains half the amount of sugar.

ReMilk is made with less sugar and more protein, while providing the same delicious taste of regular milk.

The $3.20 product is lactose-free and may be easier to digest than whole cow’s milk.

Advanced Sports Dietitian and Accredited Practicing Dietitian Simone Austin said: “Over the last decade many Australians have switched from cow’s milk to plant-based alternatives, however this is not a similar nutritional swap.”

‘Cow’s milk is one of the best natural sources of calcium, which is important as more than half of all Australians aged two and over consume inadequate levels of calcium from dietary sources.

“ReMilk offers an option with the same amount of calcium as regular cow’s milk, but with more protein and half the sugar, which is great for Aussies looking for lower sugar options.”
