Whole Milk Powder

Whole Milk Powder (WMP) is the product resulting from the partial removal of 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.
