Milk powder is milk that has been turned into a dry substance by evaporating its water content. This increases its shelf life and results in a product that is extremely suitable for use in the food and beverage industry. The powder is mainly available in two varieties: skimmed milk powder and whole milk powder. Whole milk powder is made by evaporating full cream milk as it is. Skimmed milk powder is made by evaporating milk that has had the cream skimmed off.
One purpose of drying milk is to preserve it; milk powder has a far longer shelf life than liquid milk and does not need to be refrigerated, due to its low moisture content. Another purpose is to reduce its bulk for the economy of transportation.
