Milk Fat

Consumer Voice - - The Surveillance Series -

Fat is an es­sen­tial part of any bal­anced diet, pro­vid­ing fatty acids, fat-sol­u­ble vi­ta­mins and a con­cen­trated source of en­ergy. As per Di­etary Guide­lines for In­dian by Na­tional Institute of Nu­tri­tion, Hy­der­abad, 2010, di­ets of young chil­dren and ado­les­cents should con­tain about 30 grams to 50 grams fat per day. A higher amount of milk fat in lassi is good for con­sumers.

Solids Not Fat (SNF)

Apart from fat, all other solids such as ca­seins, whey pro­teins, lac­tose, vi­ta­mins and min­er­als to­gether make up solids not fat. As all nu­tri­ents are re­quired by the body, higher SNF quan­tity is bet­ter.
