Increasing Demand for Whole Milk Powder is gaining traction in Food & Beverage Industry

Whole milk powder is commonly consumed globally because of its nutritional advantages, which have found its use in formulas for children, confectionaries, baked sweets and savoury products. Whole milk powder, a convenient type of liquid milk and an economical source of dairy products, is easily reconstituted.

Whole milk powder can also be used as a source of fat and non-fat milk solids in baked goods, confectionery and dairy products including yoghurt and milk drinks.

In addition to concentrated calcium, protein as well as other essential nutritional values, several desirable properties are enhanced by utilizing whole milk powder to formulations of the food. Whole milk powder is used for appealing purposes in baked goods or sauces, dairy proteins react during cooking or baking with lactose and other reducing sugars to achieve an attractive browning effect.

Proteins in whole milk powder serve as interfaces between the oil and water, helping to shape and stabilize fat emulsions. These properties are particularly useful in baked goods, soups, salad dressing and beverages. Dairy proteins have a clean neutral taste and usually don't add off-flavours to formulations, though whole milk powder is also used to improve the food's dairy taste.

Whole milk powder also helps to disperse protein across an air / water interface, reducing surface tension and partly unfolding the protein. Encapsulated air bubbles forms an elastic and film which can be used to make desserts and cakes. The water holding capacity of whole milk powder is being used in the viscous food products such as custards and soups to create desired textures. This binding capability helps to extend shelf life in bread dough.

It is generally recommended that whole milk powder be eaten by children and adolescents, as well as body builders. This includes calcium necessary for the growth of healthy bones and teeth, and protein to help build and regenerate muscle tissue.

The factors increase the consumption of whole milk powder with the presence of several nutrients, such as vitamin B12, vitamin C, thiamin, and high quantities of protein, which will drive the entire global whole milk powder market for the forecasted period.

Longer Shelf Life due to Packaging is boosting the Sales of Whole Milk Powder Market

The size and design of the product packaging depends on the type of milk powder, the surface area: the packaging volume ratio, the required shelf life, the condition for ambient storage and transportation and the expected market condition. Whole milk powder is often packed under N2 gas in order to safeguard the product from fat oxidation, maintain its taste and increase its storage life upto 6 months.

Furthermore the requirements of packaging performance differ and rely on variations in product characteristics, atmospheric distribution condition and business environment. However, whole milk powder packaging systems should safeguard the powder against exposure to moisture, O2 and light and predict the likely impact of external factors, including temperature, light, physical hazards, time and relative humidity.

The use of whole milk powder in place of liquid milk aims to minimise the expense of storage and transport. Significantly lower storage space and uncooled shipping and storage of dry whole milk powder turn into cost savings that drive the entire milk powder market.
