The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Milk Powder Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the global milk powder market size reached US$ 30 Billion in 2021. Powdered milk refers to pasteurized milk that is dried through evaporation. This procedure increases the shelf life of milk without the use of a refrigerator. It is used as an ingredient in infant formula, chocolates, and baking recipes. Nowadays, various kinds of milk powders are available in the market, including whole milk powder, skimmed milk powder, dairy whitener, and others. In recent years, milk powder has gained traction as it contains numerous essential nutrients, including vitamins, proteins, calcium, iron, sodium, cholesterol, potassium, fat, and carbohydrates.
