Dairy Protein Facts and Tips

  • Dairy foods such as low-fat and fat-free milk, cheese, yogurt and whey powder are convenient and cost-effective ways to power up with protein.
  • An 8-ounce glass of milk, 1-ounce of most cheeses and an 8-ounce container of yogurt have as much protein as one egg (6 grams).
  • As little as 10 grams of protein can stimulate muscle growth following exercise. Having 8-ounces of fat-free chocolate milk or an 8-ounce container of yogurt can help.
