Skimmed Milk Powder (SMP)
Skimmed Milk Powder (SMP) is obtained by the two step evaporation process of skimmed milk (fat free milk).
The first step involves the evaporation of milk to get 45-50 % total solids using an evaporator.
Secondly, the evaporated milk is passed through a nozzle and spray dried in hot air within a heated chamber. The powder from the chamber is then cooled and SMP is obtained.
The resultant powder contains casein and whey protein and is high in soluble vitamin and mineral content.
