Skim milk is like drinking water, it's actually less healthy drinking it long term than straight up whole milk which has more nutrients. Drinking a lot of whole milk is going to make you gain weight and so is sklm milk because the body will want more calories as it thinks it is being starved. You better off just having limited amount of whole milk than skilm.

Same goes for 1-2% milk, you still get the same amount of sugar in the form of lactose but no fat. The fat in milk is where the nutrients are stored.

So back to these 'gluten free' tortilla chips. Are they just scamming the food industry?
You would think that would be illegal???

I see a number of these chips claiming this gluten free thing right along side each other...

Why would it be illegal? They ARE gluten free. Always have been. Any food that's gluten free can label itself so. Pork chops can be labeled gluten free. Why not? Who exactly is being "scammed"? Certainly not the food industry. I don't understand why you think there's a scam going on. Gluten free is the new craze, so if your food is gluten free anyway, why not label it as such? You might just suck in an uninformed consumer such as yourself who thinks eating gluten free will benefit themselves in some way.

That reminds me of the "Cholesterol Free" stickers on bananas a few years back.
