Letter Re: Powdered Milk


To add to the article “What’s for Dinner,” one way to make powdered milk more palatable is to add one can of evaporated milk per gallon of reconstituted powdered milk. Powdered milk has had most of the milk fats removed from it and adding them back in via evaporated milk makes it much better tasting.

When we lived in Turkey, the milk plant on the Balgat airbase in Ankara used the powdered with evaporated method to provide milk for the BX. (Tuberculosis is endemic in the cattle herds in Turkey, and you will get TB if you drink their milk.) If you didn’t know, you would swear it was “real” milk. – H.D.
