Consumer Tips – Buying Nonfat Dry Milk

Rance Miles serves as the chief operating officer and chief financial officer of Quality Milk Sales in Artesia, New Mexico. In this role, Rance Miles manages the production and financial operations of a milk and dairy producer that supplies grocery stores with many related items, including nonfat dry milk.

Nonfat dry milk (regular or instant) results from spraying skim milk into heated air. Both regular and instant nonfat dry milk products kinds contain the same nutrients. Regular dry milk takes up less shelf space, while instant is easier to mix with water.

When buying nonfat dry milk, it is important to look for certain verbiage on the label. For example, consumers should purchase milk that includes vitamins A and D. Further, the label Grade A is used by virtually all processors to indicate top quality. Extra grade means the milk is more soluble, has less bacteria and scorched particles, and has slightly less butterfat.
