After you mix up a pitcher of milk, how long does it last in the refrigerator?
A week is as long as I have kept it and it was fine.
For use in recipes I just add the powder and add water with the rest of the liquid ingredients.
I don't think it last as long as regular milk. But you'll know when it turns, it will smell bad like regular milk does.
I know it curdles just like regular milk only it is spongy looking.
It was an experiment. A neighbor gave us a bunch of expired powdered milk and since the pigs love curdled milk I left it on the counter overnight to see if it would curdle.
I've had some in the fridge as long as 2 1/2 weeks. And it got used up before it went bad. Hubby and I don't drink much milk.
That is part of the reason I use the powdered milk. I can keep it on the shelf and make up what I need.
THe words good and powder milk should never be used inthe same sentence
Money was tight when I grew up so my mom used to mix 1/2
powdered milk to 1/2 whole milk and we grew up drinking that.
It must have been alot cheaper.
I could write a book about money saving things my parenst did
but we never felt poor. I guess it helped that everyone at school
was about as poor as I was. Rich kids went to their own school.
The 'whole' milk (dried), is tolerable, if you haven't eaten hot food in about a week. The only reason I'd ever use dried milk is if Armageddon arrived... and all the milk goats were gone...
I wouldn't make more than I could use in a day.
My mother and my grandmother both only used powdered milk while we were growing up, I didn't have whole milk till I was 6 and in the first grade, spent the whole first week of schooling throwing up and no one knew why. One of the cafeteria ladies was a family friend and starting giving me the 2% till I got used to that. I hope to never have to give that to my kids as their only dairy though I do add it to mac and cheese or mashed potatos to up their nutrient values.
