Baked milk is a product that can be called unique, one of a kind. And this miracle first appeared in Russia, more precisely in Ancient Russia. It was prepared the whole day in the Russian stove.
The production of this type of milk occurs by slow boiling of raw milk, until the purchase of cream color. Previously, milk was “stoked” in earthenware, now you can cook it in a thermos or a slow cooker.
In baked milk, a large amount of fats, proteins, carbohydrates, amino acids and vitamins. Milk in general, and baked in particular, is an excellent source of calcium, which is so necessary for the body. Calcium and vitamin D are used for the prevention and treatment of child rickets, vitamin A and phosphorus are needed for the development of nervous system and vision, the role of antioxidants is assigned to vitamin E and C, which enhance immunity and normalize the maturation of the child. Vitamin B, magnesium, potassium - this trinity regulates the development of the nervous and cardiovascular systems of the body.

Some experts are convinced that during the heat treatment to which the milk is subjected, it loses many useful properties and vitamins. There is some truth in this, but the main "baggage" of beneficial properties and trace elements baked milk can be preserved.
Calories of baked milk
Milk - a fatty product and caloric content, respectively, will depend on the fat content. So milk 4% of fat content will "weigh" 67 kcal / 100 grams. But this is the factory version, at home the product turns out to be much fatter, and in this case it is impossible to calculate the calories.
And in milk with fat content of 1% - a little less - 40 kcal. It is suitable for losing weight. It is worth recalling that grams and milliliters are not the same thing. That is why it is worth weighing the product, if you count calories or dieting.
By and large, baked milk is not very high in calories, especially since you can't drink a lot of it. Due to its fat content, rapid saturation occurs. So you can hardly recover much from it.
