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).
