Another purpose is to significantly reduce the volume for transportation, thereby saving costs. Powdered milk flavor and milk-derived products include pure milk powder, skim milk powder, condensed milk products, and various milk powder blends. These products do not meet the standard requirements. Powdered milk is widely used as a food ingredient and offers numerous health benefits (nutrition) and applications in biotechnology.
