Dry Powdered Milk


Nonfat dry milk is a wholesome dairy product made from fresh milk. Only the cream and water are removed.

It still contains all the nutrients, except fat, found in fresh milk, and is now at this point considered "skim milk".



First of all to clarify, the Bishop's Storehouse dry milk is non-fat, non-instant.
It has to be non-fat (skim) because milk contains fat and that would go rancid faster in storage.

UPDATE: We can no longer "can" our dry milk powder in the LDS Canneries (or Bishop's Storehouses as they are also called), but we can make an appointment to buy any of the items listed on the "Home Storage Order Form" (see under main topic "Getting Started", subtopic "How Much Do I Have?" for explanation of this form and to see products).

Powder Milk Ingredients are:
Nonfat Dry Milk, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D3

Milk Alternative Ingredients are:
Made from sweet dairy whey, non-fat dry milk solids, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil (contains one or more of the following:canola oil and/or soya oil), corn syrup solids, sodium caseinate, dipotassium phosphate, propylene glycol monostearate, mono and diglycerides, lecithin, carrageenan, Vitamin A & D



Don't be so worried about precise measuring when measuring dry powdered milk!

A little more just "enriches" the recipe. I find that I really can't "over measure" dry milk. It just makes the recipe more creamy. You can experiment for yourself.
