A dairy product made from cow milk is powdered milk. Essentially, cow's milk is composed of water, lipids, protein, sugar, and ash. Water makes up between 86 and 88 percent of the weight of cow milk. Before the milk is powdered, a sizeable yet proportionate amount of cream material is removed during the skimming process. After some vitamins are added, the processed milk powder is packaged in fully galvanized metal cans or plastic bags. As a source of newborn food, milk plays a crucial role because it is a special fluid that contains all of the necessary nutrients in one convenient package. Milk is the second most essential source of nutrition for a large number of people after staple cereals. Today, the dairy industry's manufacture of dried milks and milk-based products has grown in importance. One of the most popular and processed milks is milk powder. Spray drying and drum drying processes are both used to manufacture milk powder, which has a precise composition that is required. Dairy processing as a whole is a good project.



A common food is milk powder.

2. It is a baby's whole diet.

3. It is used to make ice cream, curd, butter, ghee, and other foods.

4. All houses use milk powder.

5. It is used in hotels and restaurants to prepare milk-based dishes, as well as to make tea and coffee.

6. Manufacturing of cheese, yoghurt, ice cream, and lassies uses it.


Health Benefits

While the proteins, water-soluble vitamins, and minerals in skimmed milk powder are lost, the fat and fat-soluble vitamins are present.

• Nearly the same amounts of proteins (26%) and carbs (37%) are present in skim milk powder as there are in liquid form. However, the ratio of fat and water has been reduced to zero. It can be consumed by people with high cholesterol levels and heart issues because it is thought to contain zero fats and is a healthy substitute for whole milk. Vitamins A and D are also added to skim milk powder. While vitamin D aids in bone growth, vitamin A assists to improve vision. Both vitamins are essential for maintaining and repairing skin.

• Powdered skimmed milk can be used like ordinary milk for drinking or cooking after being reconstituted with water to maintain teeth and bones at all stages of life thanks to the calcium it contains. Milk drinks and milk chocolates can be less calorically dense when produced with skimmed milk. Many ice creams are marketed as low fat and contain skimmed milk powder in its reconstituted form. However, the low fat content would not help if the recipe calls for full fat milk. Cakes, muffins, cupcakes, pastries, milk cookies, biscuits, and other baked goods can all be made with skim milk powder.


Indian Market

With a vast output valued at $26.9 billion in 2014, India is a significant producer of raw milk (the component for milk and dairy products). India consumes the most milk in the world—150 million tonnes (2016)—and 26% of all milk consumed worldwide. It is mostly used to make special Indian dairy dishes like ghee (butter oil), dahi (yoghurt), and paneer (cottage cheese), which are frequently manufactured at home. It is also used to make beverages like chai drinks, which are popular among ordinary Indians.

With a 299.9 Mn bovine population, which includes cattle, buffalo, mithun, and yak, India's livestock industry is one of the largest in the world. The stable supply of milk, the main raw material for this business, ensures the expansion of the dairy and milk processing markets in India.

In 2021, the market for skim milk powder (SMP) in India was worth INR 118.8 billion. It is a plentiful supply of vital nutrients that the body needs for overall growth. Customers who want to cut back on calories use it as a substitute for whole milk powder because it has minimal moisture, fat, and milk protein content. Numerous factors have contributed to the market's robust rise. The market is mostly being driven by consumers' rising health consciousness. The market has grown as a result of a number of additional variables, such as penetration in new regions, rising incomes, rising standards of living, and population increase. The market projects that it would reach INR 235.6 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 11% from 2022 to 2027.


Global Market

Because it contains several nutrients, including vitamin B12, thiamin, and substantial amounts of protein, milk powder is consumed worldwide and is a major industry. Additionally, milk powder has a longer shelf life than ordinary milk, which contributes to the larger demand for milk powder.

There are many domestic and international competitors vying for market dominance in the fragmented global milk powder industry. Companies' primary marketing strategies currently centre on the introduction of new products that make natural or organic claims. Among other significant players are AMUL Fed, Nestlé S.A, Arla Foods, Fonterra Co-Operative Group, and NOW Foods. Amul spent INR 415 Cr in four new projects in 2021, one of which being the new milk powder mill at AmulFed Dairy. The new milk powder facility at AmulFed Dairy, a division of the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), has increased its daily production capacity from 35 lakh to 50 lakh liters. The market for milk powder was valued at $27,783.3 million in 2017; by 2025, it is anticipated to reach $38,086.1 million, rising at a CAGR of 4.4 percent.
