Milk powder or pure liquid milk, which is best?
Both milk formulas are okay and safe to use. However, there are advantages of using powdered milk versus liquid milk.
Powdered milk are much easier to store and convenient since it has longer shelf-life compared to it’s liquid form. At the same time, it is a readily available source of protein and vitamin D and also high in calcium that is good for pregnant, nursing and those people suffering from osteoporosis. Powdered milk contains no fat and is low in calories and cholesterol-free.
It has a far longer shelf life than liquid milk and does not need to be refrigerated , due to its low moisture content. Also it helps reduce its bulk for economy of transportation. Available as Dry Whole Milk , it is most commonly produced as Non-Fat Dry Milk , also known as Dried Skim Milk.
On the other hand, non-fat dry milk can go rancid anytime since it contains fat. Liquid milk tastes much better than it’s counterparts. Others still prefer drinking fresh milk because of it’s flavor, quality and freshness.
It is important to note that whether it is a powder milk or liquid milk, still they have pretty much the same amount of vitamins A and D, as well as calcium. All of them will provide us our need for continued growth and strengthening of the bones.
