the only way I like drinking milk is in the form of chocolate milk. but cocoa apparently contains a lot of phytic acid.

Well the typical transit of the gut is 8-12 and about 2-3 hours in the stomach. Either way, ip-6 has real health benefits as an anti-cancer agent and a inositol precursor, so I think irregular consumption (like you say, few times a week) is on the whole positive rather than negative. I definately agree that the thing is overrated as a health hazard, unless you have mineral deficiencies, or a poor diet. And also that the sugar is a bigger concern, and one I hadnt thought of in regards to this question.

Everything stays in your gut until it's been expelled.

so separating it in meals doesn't help. I personally don't think small amounts of phytic acid once or twice a week is the big scary monster it's made out to be in the Paleo community unless you're suffering from obviously mineral deficiencies such as cavities. I've never had a cavity in my life but I guess if I did I wouldn't be drinking chocolate milk anyway because of the sugar.

Phytic acid stays in your gut until it's been expelled. So a breakfast of whole grains or a snack of chocolate milk will affect the meals you have hours later until it is all bound and pooped out.

I read the rest of your post. no idea what the hell you're talking about. you asked an irrelevant question and I answered.

But you don't like it without chocolate anyway... Anyway besides that the phosphorous from the milk will probably bind with some of the phytic acid. Instead of getting petty and defensive you could have read the rest of what I wrote which actually answered your easily google-able question.

"why not just give up milk?" um, because I don't want to?

Phytic acid (also called ip-6) is an inositol precursor, and anti-carcinogen.

If you consume it seperately from mineral rich foods, and do so irregularly, Id consider it health promoting.

The fermentation heats the beans too hot for them to sprout later on. You'd have to find unfermented beans, which are extremely high in phytates... even more so than most nuts or seeds. Dutch processing removes more phytates but it also removes many of the antioxidants believed to give chocolate health giving properties.

Why not just give up milk? It's not like anyone here is thinking it's a required food... >>
