Skimmed Milk Powder (SMP)

Skimmed Milk Powder (SMP)

Skimmed Milk Powder (SMP) is a dairy product made by evaporating pasteurized skimmed cow’s milk. It contains lactose, milk proteins and minerals in the same relative proportions as the fresh milk from which it was made. Skim milk powder is by far the most common type of milk powder available.

Skim Milk Powder is classified for use as an ingredient according to the heat treatment used in the manufacturing process: 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).

Typical Composition of Skimmed Milk Powder (SMP)

Proteins: 34-37%, Fat: 0.6-1.25%, Ash: 8.2-8.6%, Lactose: 49.5-52.0%, Moisture: 3-4%. It should be free from bacteria of the genus Salmonella. One gram of powder must not contain more than 50,000 mesophilic bacteria, 10 coliforms and 100 Staphylococcus aureus.


Dried Skim Milk is used widely as a food ingredient, mostly in dairy, prepared dry mixes, confectionery and bakery. SMP can be reconstituted by adding water to obtain liquid milk, recombined by adding water and fat in such a quantity to achieve the desired fat content, or simply used as an ingredient. Its high nutritional quality combined with its versatile and multi-functional properties make it attractive for many applications such as the following: confections, sports and nutrition food, infant formulas, bakery products, dry mixes, fermented milk products, ice cream, frozen dairy desserts, cheese analogues (processed cheese), meat products, coffee whiteners, frostings, puddings, animal feed, and many more.
