Powdered milk is a manufactured milk product which is created by drying out liquid milk by means of evaporation. One of the foremost purposes for drying out dairy milk is for storage, as milk powder has a lengthier shelf life than normal liquid milk, and it does not need to be cooled.
One of the more general uses for powdered milk is for the production of baby/infant formula. It is also used for confectionery for example chocolate and caramel candy, and baked goods where using liquid milk will make the product too thin.
There is a big export industry for Milk with the manufacture of powdered milk in Europe estimated to be at Eight hundred thousand tonnes.
