Incorrect things about milk

A glass of 250 milliliters of milk can cover about 10% of the body's daily calorie needs. Milk contains macronutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, fats and micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals.

"Milk contains essential nutrients that are not produced by the body, so the body needs an intake of the outside in a perfectly nutritious glass of milk," clinical nutritionist Diana F Suganda told the conference. "Milkversation with Frisian Flag" in Jakarta. , Wednesday (15/5).

Unfortunately, there are still many people who have not used the different ingredients in the milk. Some people are lazy enough to drink milk because of remarkable myths.

Here are the myths and facts about milk.

1. Milk is only for children

Children need milk to meet calcium needs to support their growth. However, children need calcium but also 1000 to 1200 milligrams a day.

Diana explained that a study found that dietary intake would be reduced if milk was replaced by other food sources containing equal amounts of calcium. Food sources that can replace calcium in milk include green vegetables and red meat.

2. Milk is only good for bones

In a study published in the 2009 Journal of the American College of Nutrition, a study found that eating dairy products with a low-salt diet helped lower blood pressure. The researchers found that the mineral content of milk, especially calcium, potassium and magnesium, helped regulate blood pressure.

Then, in another study published in the same journal, it was found that diets high in dairy products could reduce symptoms in patients with colorectal cancer (colon cancer) and prolong their life.

"[The assumption] that milk only serves bone is not right," Diana said.

Another study found that older people who consume milk regularly have high levels of antioxidants in glutathione in the brain. These antioxidants play an important role in protecting against free radicals and increasing the risk factors for dementia.

3. Milk makes you fat

The milk, which has been accused of being responsible for the increase in weight, has proved otherwise. The study, published in the International Journal of Obesity in 2004, found that milk can help you lose weight.

Studies involving participants suffering from obesity. They were divided into two groups, namely the low calcium diet group (400-500 milligrams) and the high calcium diet group (1200-2300 milligrams).

As a result, said Diana, the second group lost a lot of weight, body fat and abdominal fat compared to the first group.

4. Milk makes diarrhea

Many people assume that diarrhea after milk consumption is due to lactose intolerance.

However, the meta-analysis of 21 studies conducted in 2006 revealed that lactose is not a cause of digestive problems, including diarrhea. There are concomitant causes that cause diarrhea.

According to a study published by the National Institute of Health, the US Department of Health and Human Sciences in 2007, diarrhea is caused by many factors such as the consumption of antibiotics, bacterial or viral infections, infections gastrointestinal symptoms and certain food intolerances.

5. Only certain types of milk are good for the body

Some people avoid consuming whole milk because of their high fat content. Diana said you should not be afraid to drink whole milk if you do not complain about obesity.

The main key to drinking milk is to see the daily calories. A person may be fat not because she adds milk, but because her daily calorie intake is over.

"If we eat milk containing fat, we are fuller, so the other inputs are reduced," said Diana.

Any milk is good for the body, as long as you look at the total intake. The choice of whole milk, low fat or skim is only a matter of taste. Each has the same nutritional content, but is different in fat.
