Milk powder or dried milk is a dairy product which is manufactured by evaporating milk until it becomes dry. During the process, the milk is pasteurised under controlled temperatures to eliminate any bacterial growth. Milk powder is a rich source of essential vitamins and minerals such as calcium, zinc, magnesium, and vitamins A, E, K and D. In addition to this, it also provides other nutritional elements such as antioxidants and amino acids which play a vital role in cellular growth, aiding in blood clotting and enhancing the body’s immune system.
