To all Europeans, I need to know how much sugar is shown in the ingredients of a pint of milk. It doesnt matter if its organic, full fat, semi-skimmed or skimmed but as long as its standard milk and not soya or with flavourings such as chocolate or vanilla or anything like that. If you only have a 2 pint or a gallon etc then thats fine too.
I am trying to work out if we european countries have any sugar in our milk as for 32 years of living in UK I never noticed that we did, but when I recently moved to the US and went shopping I noticed a hell of a lot of items with sugar content that I never thought we had in Europe/UK. One of which being milk. The other thing is, does your milk have With Vitamin A & D or other things like that? My guess is that milk with added vitamins probably contains more sugar.

I'd be grateful if you could also let me know any other common items such as bread, cheese, baked beans etc. that also have or dont have sugar and how much if they do.

Thanks in advance

To my knowledge there are no additives in milk.

There are different processing levels (homogenized (almost always), pasteurized or ultra-heated, skimmed or full-fat), but I've never seen any additives. It's probably prohibited by law.

The nutrition label on a container of milk does indeed break down nutrients and includes an item for sugar - which consists of lactose, a naturally-occurring milk sugar. Milk appears high in sugar because it contains lactose, although no "sugar" has been added. A similar situation exists for yogurt - very high in "sugar" even in the plain, unflavored, unsweetened versions.

Yep, AAFLT192 has it right. Lactose is a natural sugar found in dairy products including milk. It has to be listed as a "sugar" due to FDA labeling. Similarly, when fruit is an ingredient, "sugar" will be listed in the nutrition information as well, since fruit is natural sugar.

5gr per 100ml seems to be a bit high, more like 4.6-4.8gr per 100ml Lactose, yes, that sounds about right!

I know it's only VfB but I like it!
