If you're like me, you gag at the thought of the normal everyday powdered skim milk. But, come on. Powdered whole milk? Yeah, that's what I thought too until someone turned me on to NIDO (Made by Nestle). I just learned about this stuff over the weekend. I bought a can at Walmart (900gram - 1.89lb) for $7.25 today and wasted no time in mixing up 16 oz. I went strictly by the directions of 3 rounded tablespoons per 8 oz. (one 900 gram can will make 30 8 oz servings [1 gal + 3.5 qts.]) Threw it in the fridge to chill... And - HOLY COW - I absolutely cannot tell the difference between this and regular whole milk! I am not kidding. I'm drinking it right now! This is some pretty great stuff! Very very creamy. The use-by date on our can is Oct '09, and with the fat content, I'd suspect maybe an extra two or three months if vac-packed in mylar w/ 02 absorbers. Maybe a little longer still if stored in a freezer in conjunction w/ mylar and O2 absorbers. Pricey, yes, but I figure one could also add it to the powdered skim to stretch the preps some. I'll put a few cans back to rotate through. I'm sold on the stuff. I'm getting more tomorrow.
