What is SKIM MILK?

Watered down cow lactate.


How is SKIM MILK made?

Raw milk is collected from cows at the farm, then pumped into calibrated, refrigerated, stainless-steel tanks. The milk is then pumped into the tanker trucks and shipped to a processing plant. Once at the processing plant, the milk is either separated or clarified. 

Cream, with its heavier fat content, settles to the bottom of storage tanks if the milk is allowed to sit for a short period of time. Once the  separation occurs, a machine simply pushes, or skims, the lower-fat milk off the top. This is how skim milk gets its name. The lighter 1% and 2% milks are made in the same manner, by skimming lower-fat milk off the top. Additional steps separate the milk and fats to reach the targeted fat percentage.

    I think listing the additional steps in your last sentence is important. Anyway to add that?
