Frequently Asked Questions


Can liquid skim milk be substituted for dry milk powder?

Can we use skim milk in place of skim milk powder? If we can what quantity of skim milk should be used for 3 teaspoons milk powder?


Yes, you can use skim milk or milk in place of milk powder (also called dry milk or powdered milk). Milk powder usually reconstitutes at a ratio of 1 to 4. For example 1 cup of milk powder to four cups of water, or 1/4 cup of milk powder to 1 cup water.

Now let's do a little "cooking math"! 3 teaspoons equals 1 tablespoon. So 1 tablespoon of milk powder will require 4 tablespoons water to be reconstituted into liquid milk. 4 tablespoons equals 1/4 cup.

So what you need to do is omit the milk powder and 1/4 cup of the liquid (I'm assuming it's water) in your recipe and replace them with 1/4 cup liquid skim milk.
