Is powdered milk as nutritious as chilled milk?

Powdered milk is made through a spray drying process, which removes the water from milk. The nutrients remain the same in powdered milk as in chilled milk.

Cows milk powder is made by removing the water from fresh cows milk through spray drying, reducing the moisture level to just 3%.

The nutrients remain the same after spray drying, however are much more concentrated in the powdered form. Powdered milk can be reconstituted to fresh milk with the addition of water- see back of pack for dilution quantities.

Powdered milk is a convenient, more shelf stable alternative to chilled milk and can be used across a range of applications.
