What is the sugar content of skim milk?

The sugar content of skim milk (0.15% fat) is on average 5.5g/100mL.

Skim (plain) milk, like other regular plain milks, only contains the naturally occurring sugar lactose. Skim milk has slightly higher lactose than full cream milk (~5g/100mL) as there isn't as much fat in skim milk and the concentration of the lactose slightly increases. There is no sugar added to skim milk.
