Powdered milk is made by evaporating milk to dryness. Drying actually preserves the milk and gives a much longer shelf life than liquid milk and due to its low moisture content it does not need to be refrigerated. There are many dry milk products including nonfat dry milk, dry whole milk, dry whey products, dry dairy blends and dry buttermilk.
