Does milk consumption contribute to cardiometabolic health and overall diet quality?


Lamarche, Benoît; Givens, D Ian; Soedamah-Muthu, Sabita; Krauss, Ronald M; Jakobsen, Marianne Uhre; Bischoff-Ferrari, Heike A; Pan, An; Després, Jean-Pierre (2016). Does milk consumption contribute to cardiometabolic health and overall diet quality? The Canadian Journal of Cardiology, 32(8):1026-1032.

Abstract

Although milk consumption is recommended in most dietary guidelines around the world, its contribution to overall diet quality remains a matter of debate in the scientific community as well as in the public domain. This article summarizes the discussion among experts in the field on the place of milk in a balanced healthy diet. The evidence to date suggests at least a neutral effect of milk intake on health outcomes. The possibility that milk intake is simply a marker of diets higher in nutritional quality cannot be ruled out. This review also identifies a number of key research gaps pertaining to the impact of milk consumption on health. These need to be addressed to better inform future dietary guidelines.
