Drinking milk with added calcium, vitamins or omega-3 is unlikely to make any difference to your health, a study has found.

The Australian consumer group Choice looked at 100 leading milk brands in Australia and found that milk marketed as having low-saturated fats, extra omega-3 fatty acids, A2 proteins, vitamin D and calcium had little effect on the health of people drinking them.

But New Zealand's biggest milk supplier, Fonterra, has hit back, saying the researchers' claims are nonsense.
