    What % of Skim Milk is water?

    First of all, does skim milk contain water? Second, How much water is in a cup of skim milk? Im wondering if I start drinking a bit more skim milk throughout the day if I need to maintain the same amount of water intake or how much I can reduce my water intake by because of the extra milk now. Thanks.

    If you want a really easy way.... just reduce the amount of water you drink by the amount of milk you drink. It's mostly water. Or just keep drinking more water. It won't kill you
    I wish my flab was emo so it'd cut itself.

    For reference I averaged the figures for each type from that link:
    Whole - 87.7% water
    2% - 88.4% water
    1% - 89.5% water
    Skim - 90.4% water

    Sometimes I wonder if people really just don't know about that site or are just too lazy to use it. I would have thought that everyone knew about it and usually assume they are being lazy and starting a thread for the sake of it. So Usually I'll post some flippant comment, but sometimes, like today, I don't feel like being an ass.

    Glad to be of help.

    It has a lot of other good info too, like fat breakdown and amino acid profile. For the fats, the following table is useful to convert from scientific notation to common names
