The price range for Skim Milk Powder (SMP) in Western Europe had risen towards the end of the first quarter of 2022. The market's mood was described as tight as tension rose from a lack of SMP availability. Almost all of the production had already been committed. As a result, producers had a limited supply of SMPs. To make matters worse, some buyers were becoming increasingly concerned about events in Ukraine and the uncertainty as to whether they would have an impact on future purchases. So many purchasers attempted to lock in SMP in higher amounts and earlier than usual. In the third week of March, price was between 4.250-4.475 USD/MT.

About Skim Milk Powder:

Skim Milk Powder or skimmed milk powder is extracted by eliminating water from pasteurised skim milk (fat-free milk). It is made up of 5% or less moisture (by weight) and 1.5% or less milkfat (by weight) along with a minimum milk protein content of around 34%. Skim Milk Powder has been categorised for use as an ingredient based on the heat treatment process utilised during its manufacture. 

Synonyms:

  • Powdered milk
  • Dried milk 
  • Non-fat dry milk

Industrial Uses:

  • Confectionaries
  • Baby food
  • Bakery
  • Chocolates
  • Cream
  • Cheese

Production process:

  • Production of Skim Milk Powder via Spray Drying Process.

In this process, pasteurised non-fat skimmed milk is concentrated in an evaporator, reducing the content to almost 50% milk solids. The concentrated milk obtained in the previous step is then sprayed into a heated chamber, almost instantly evaporating the water content and leaving behind fine powdered particles of milk solids.
