Milk Powder

Today I want to focus on yet another dairy product.... Milk powder. Up until a few years ago Milk powder was not a product that I paid much attention to as it was always readily available. That all changed when I one day went into a supermarket and could find none.
 Now to be clear, I am speaking about powdered whole milk, not the food drink. I was very disheartened at the sight of the empty shelves. I could not understand why it seemed as if I was the only person who seemed perturbed by this.

To give you some background on Powdered milk, it is simply Milk from which almost all the moisture has been removed. Dry (also called powdered) milk is less expensive and easier to store than fresh milk. But I bet you already knew that.

After this powdered milk shortage ended, the price of Powdered milk rose remarkably.

In choosing whole milk powder, one will be tempted to choose the most familiar brand. I'll share what I have found. Having tried all the available brands for myself, I must say there is no difference in terms of taste in the different products. The smart shopper will consider and compare the current prices.


Feel free to comment and let me know what you think. What do you consider to be the best milk powder on the Market?
