Skim Milk Powder is obtained by removing water from pasteurized skim milk. It contains 5% or less moisture (by weight) and 1.5% or less milkfat (by weight) and a minimum milk protein content of 34%. Skim Milk Powder is classified for use as an ingredient according to the heat treatment used in their manufacture. There are three main classifications: high-heat (least soluble), medium-heat, and low-heat (most soluble). Spray-dried Skim Milk Powder is available in two forms: ordinary or non-agglomerated (non-instant) and agglomerated (instant). The medium or low heat skimmed milk powder is suitable for infant milk formula industry.

The difference between Skim Milk Powder and Nonfat Dry Milk is that Skim Milk Powder’s protein can be adjusted to 34% by using milk retentate or milk Permeate.
