Skim Milk Powder
Skim Milk Powder (SMP) is is the product resulting from the partial removal of fat and water from pasteurized milk. The fat and/or protein content of the milk may have been adjusted, only to comply with the compositional requirements below, by the addition and/or withdrawal of milk constituents in such a way as not to alter the whey protein to casein ratio of the milk being adjusted.
This is only a product made for export. It cannot be used in any standard of identity dairy products in the U.S.
ADPI members can access all product standards information through the “Ingredients Resource Center for Members.”
SMP contains 5% or less moisture (by weight) and 1.5% or less milkfat (by weight) and a minimum milk protein content of 34%. Skim Milk Powder is classified for use as an ingredient according to the heat treatment used in their manufacture. There are three main classifications: high-heat (least soluble), medium-heat, and low-heat (most soluble). Spray-dried Skim Milk Powder is available in two forms: ordinary or non-agglomerated (non-instant) and agglomerated (instant).
