Tipos de Leite em inglês

Alessandro (online) 3 11 87
De uns anos pra cá, passei a prestar mais atenção ao consumo de leite. Descobri depois de adulto que tenho um grau leve de intolerância à lactose. Quem é intolerante sabe o quanto é desagradável a sensação de distensão abdominal, inchaço e outros efeitos colaterais. Saber escolher o leite na prateleira do supermercado se tornou algo importante também em inglês.
  • Lactose-Free milk (Zero Lactose): Lactose-free milk is an easy alternative that could help eliminate many of these unpleasant symptoms.
  • Whole milk (Integral): Is Whole milk better than low-fat and skim milk?
  • Low-Fat milk / Reduced-Fat milk (Semidesnatado / Leite com baixo teor de gordura): Whole milk offers clear nutritional advantages over skim and low-fat milk.
  • Skim milk / Fat Free milk (Leite desnatado): Fat free milk has all the nutrients of other dairy milks.
Question: What’s your favorite type of milk?


Se no Brasil tivemos o sucesso o sucesso da campanha dos mamíferos da Parmalat, nos EUA vimos a "Got Milk?" (Tem leite?) que encorajava o consumo de leite de vaca. Um fato curioso foi que essas campanhas favoreceram todos os produtores de leite, não apenas as marcas divulgadas.

The Milk is Getting Sour

Um dos meus episódios favoritos de Friends é o do Blackout. Nele a Phoebe canta uma música maluca onde ela diz que NY não tem energia elétrica e que o leite está azedando. Não dá pra esquecer que o leite azeda (sour), mais uma forma de criar sinapses e ampliar o vocabulário.

Whole milk (3.25% milkfat)
Reduced-fat milk (2%),
Lowfat milk (1%)
Fat-free milk, a.k.a. Skim milk ('all' the fat is removed from the whole milk. Wait! It is left 0.1%, hence the 'all' here.)

Anyway, all of them pack 9 nutrients, including protein.
Percentages (fat amount or fat/weight) are noted on the package and by the different cap colors.

By looking for the percentage you can´t go wrong. Since it seems like dairy producers from the two sides of Pond don´t talk the same language, in the UK they accept the 'semi-skimmed' jargon, whereas in US seems like they shun it. My impression, though.

I favour the reduced-fat milk - 2%. It´s more 'cholesterol-friendly' and it tastes less bland than the other 'wish-washy' (waterish) ones. But I can change my mind in the future, who knows?

I stopped drinking dairy milk and started drinking only plant-based milk since the beggining of last year. Plant-based milks include oat milk, coconut milk and soy milk, they are absolutely delicious. I did that because I became aware of the cruelty caused to cows in the industry in order to produce milk.

For example, they are forcibly artificially inseminated to get pregnant (in order to produce milk they have to be pregnant, like humans) and when they give birth the calf is taken away so the calf doesn't drink the milk, otherwise farmes would lose profits. Cows form strong bonds with their youngs and scream in pain for days in the direction where their babies were dragged off. If it's a male they are usually shot just after birth because they are not profitable for the dairy industry. If it's a female they are gonna go through the same process as their mothers. A cow's life-span in the nature would be around 20 years, in the dairy industry they live up to 5 years, after that their milk production starts to decline and are they are sent to slaughter.

We don't need milk to be healthy, so how can we justify it? I guess culture plays a major role, but we shouldn't base our actions on culture.

Anyways, that's it.
