The first documented use of powdered milk dates back to the Mongolian Tartars. According to Marco Polo, they sun dried mares' milk to bring with them on their daily journeys. While no documentation confirms how the milk tasted, it's safe to say that the many varieties of powdered milk offered today would come out on top in a taste test. Today's powdered milk manufacturers offer chocolate-flavoured powdered milk, non-fat, soy, and whole milk varieties. Powdered milk is used extensively in baking, cooking and in baby formula. It is also commonly used in UN food aid supplies and in stocking fallout shelters.


Thrive powdered milk is made from part dairy and part soy. It is non-fat, dissolves in water and is rich in vitamin A and calcium . Thrive powdered milk is ideal for baking and cooking.

Country Cream

Country Cream's powdered milk is made from 100 per cent milk and provides the equivalent amounts of vitamin A and D. The milk has an estimated shelf-life of 10 to 20 years, depending on your storage area temperature. Country Cream also makes powdered soy milk, powdered chocolate soy milk, and a powdered chocolate milk.

Morning Moo

The powdered milk produced by Morning Moo is made with grade A sweet dairy whey, and is considered a milk alternative. The whey contributes nutrients like carbohydrates, trace minerals and protein. It is fortified with vitamins A and D, has no preservatives and is a great source of calcium. Because of Morning Moo's use of whey, their powdered milk contains a lower lactose level than dairy-based powdered milks, and is safe for people to drink who are lactose intolerant. Morning Moo milk can be stored for up to 10 years if kept in a temperature of 12.8 degrees C. After mixed, the milk will stay fresh for five to seven days if refrigerated. You must use hot water to dissolve the powder into the desired consistency.

Organic Valley milk products come from family farmers that do not use pesticides, synthetic hormones or antibiotics. Its animals are treated humanely and are fed with certified organic feed.
