Milkshaking News The FDA is changing the nomenclature of the different categories of milk, to go into effect between now and January. * Skim milk may call itself fat-free and carry an American Heart Assn. symbol. * 1% low-fat milk, if it chooses, may call itself just plain low-fat. * 2% low-fat will no longer be allowed to call itself low-fat; from now on, it'll be reduced fat. Whole milk, unchanged at 3.2%, will still be called milk.

Americans may get some help soon in deciding how much fat is in that morning glass of milk. Congress in 1990 voted that 2% milk could be labeled low-fat even though it isn't. Federal law says 3 grams of fat per serving is the most that every other food can contain and still advertise as a low-fat alternative--but 2% milk has 5 grams per serving.

A wealthy nutritional activist who has forced such companies as General Mills and Nabisco to lower the fat in their foods on Monday launched what some medical experts say is a misguided attack on 2% milk. In newspaper advertisements, millionaire businessman Phil Sokolof urges parents not to serve their children 2% milk because a single glass contains as much fat as two strips of bacon. Sokolof advocates skim or 1% milk. But child nutrition experts cautioned against following Sokolof's advice.

Eugene Sigler of Chicago Heights, Ill., was having breakfast at his daughter's home in Newbury Park, Calif., when he noticed something different about the milk. "Naomi, what is this?" he asked. "Low-fat milk," she replied, a surprise to Sigler. "It had a fuller taste than the 2% we get," said Sigler. The secret of California's milk lies in the milk solids that state law requires to be added to all 1% and 2% milk.

There has been a revolutionary breakthrough in the frankfurter world, according to a meat industry publication. A Chicago-based firm has announced that it has developed frankfurter casings that can carry messages, logos or labeling claims. Now link lovers can enjoy advertising or promotion, as well as mustard, on their frankfurters. Late last month, Viskase Corp. made available the versatile enclosures to meat processors after receiving the required federal approval, Lean Trimmings reports.
