BNI™ 101.11s: Flavored semi-skimmed cow milk (average)

dietBNI™ 101.11s: Flavored semi-skimmed cow milk (average), AUS / NZ, 2011.

This is the nutritional value of flavored semi-skimmed milk in New Zealand in 2011. It represents the average aggregated nutritional value of a sample of 20 brands and sub-brands of flavored semi-skimmed milk available in New Zealand in 2011, produced mostly locally. The sample was collated as part of a research on the nutritional composition of milk and milk alternatives in New Zealand. This nutritional profile (see figure below) can be summarised as being, mainly, biased towards excess of sugar, adequate in protein, carbohydrate, fat and sodium, high in saturated fat, and low in fiber. It also provides about 130mg of calcium per 100ml.

This nutritional profile may be more representative of those who change brands often, as well as of the population, in general. However, it is less representative of the universe of brands on offer and of those consumers who prefer a particular brand of flavored semi-skimmed milk, for which a prototypical nutritional profile may be more relevant (see foodBNI).
