What is Dry skimmed milk?
Dry skimmed milk, also known as nonfat dry milk or skim milk powder, is a type of milk that has had all of its cream and fat removed. The milk is first pasteurized and then evaporated to remove most of the water content. The resulting dry powder has a shelf life of several months and can be reconstituted with water to create liquid milk.
Dry skimmed milk is often used in food manufacturing and baking, as it has a longer shelf life and can be easily transported and stored. It is also a popular choice for people who are watching their calorie and fat intake, as it has a much lower fat content compared to whole milk.
In addition to its use in food products, dry skimmed milk can also be used as a protein supplement and is a common ingredient in sports and nutrition drinks. It is a good source of protein, calcium, and other essential vitamins and minerals.
