Martha's Got Milk

Martha will be featured in a new Milk ad that will run in magazines across America starting in June. Below are some facts about cereal's best friend and a few of the photos from Martha's session.

Whole Milk

Whole milk has a rich, creamy taste. It contains on average 3.25 percent fat, 150 calories, and 8 grams of fat per serving, the highest of any form of milk. Unlike reduced-fat varieties, whole milk is not required to be fortified with vitamin D, so be sure to check the nutritional information. It is excellent to use in baking when a recipe calls for milk.

Two-Percent Reduced-Fat Milk

Two percent milk contains 2 percent fat, 120 calories, and 5 grams of fat per serving. Vitamins A and D are removed with the milk fat, but must be readded so that the milk contains at least 2,000 IU of vitamin A, and 400 IU of vitamin D per quart -- these vitamins are required for 1 percent and skim milk, as well. It is the most popular variety sold in North America.

One Percent Low fat Milk

One percent milk is also called light milk. It contains 1 percent fat, 100 calories, and 2.5 grams of fat per 8 fluid ounces.

Skim Milk

Skim milk is also referred to as fat-free or nonfat milk. It must contain less than .5 percent milk fat by weight; it has 80 calories and 0 grams of fat per serving. Skim deluxe or skim supreme has the look and feel of 2 percent milk without the extra fat and calories.
Strike a pose!On her show last week, Martha explained that the frothy white patch on the upper lip really is a combination of various kinds of milk. She had to repeatedly submerge her upper lip into the mixture to get it to stay put! Below is Martha's milk ad from 1997. It was photographed by Annie Leibowitz. Martha says the crew offered the cow to her to keep, but that she didn't have the room for it at the time. Below the 1997 photo is the finished 2008 milk ad.
