If something seems to good to be true...
Fairlife milk is packaged and sold (but not produced) by the Coca cola company. They claim that gentle filtration removes most of the sugar and concentrates the protein. Also has lactase.
One cup of whole is 150 cals like regular whole milk but
6 grams carbs (about half of normal whole milk)
13 grams protein (about 150% of normal whole milk)
9 grams of fat, about the same as regular whole milk.
That would give by the way over 2 grams of protein per gram of carbs versus regular whole milk that give about .67 grams of protein per gram of carbs.
Only 16% cals from carbs.
The thing is, my son loves it. It is less sweet, and to me has really NO flavor which I guess can be a good thing. He is type 1 diabetic and to be able to get 150 cals of nutrition with just 6 grams of carbs, that he will actually eat is very helpful.

Here is an attack:
T=It doesn't actually persuade me much. IT still sounds a lot better than most milk at the store. Keep in mind that I tried grass-fed whole milk first, but my son didn't like the yummy flecks of butterfat. I do have him eating grassfed cow butter though.
Here is another article that seems to endorse it:
And I'll add a label from the whole milk to the next post.
