Skimmed milk powder
As the name indicates, powdered milk is produced from milk. The underlying process is the drying procedure in which two different types of powdered milk can be created.
Firstly, there exists powdered milk as whole milk powder that has a fat content of at least 26 percent in its dry state. Alternatively, it is also possible to produce skimmed powdered milk that has a fat content of a maximum of 1.25 percent.
The whole milk powder variant is usually used to produce dairy products, for example yoghurt or cheese; however it is also used in a number of baked goods, confectionary and chocolate as well as in formula food for babies.
