Does anyone know the kanji for whole or full fat milk or a specific brand?
If I'm not mistaken, milk here is whole unless written otherwise. 低脂肪 this is the kanji for low fat. Usually the low fat milk is cheaper. I also think most milk is local at grocery stores. I've moved a few times or visited friends and looked at the milk choices. The brand names are always different depending where I am. I have noticed at one if my supermarkets I go, beisie, there is vitamin fortified. It's a very colorful packaging with vitamins written all over it.
The kanji is 全乳, but in Japan, most milk you can buy are unmodified 成分無調整牛乳 with 3.6% fat, which most people consider whole milk. These are about 70% of the milk you can pick up easily. Otherwise, the package would say 成分調整牛乳 which is modified and typically with lower fat, except for the 4.5% extra fat milk you can find. Side note: the best-tasting milk in Japan are from Hokkaido 北海道 so try for look for them if you can :)
