Powdered and Instant Milk

For many people the difference between powdered milk and instant milk can be confusing.  You can store both powdered and instant milks in your home store or choose one.   Powdered milk is a little cheaper and works great for baking and cooking but instant works better for drinking. Both are very useful products.

How to use
Drinking, baking, pretty much everything
Cooking and baking is its best use.  You can add it to your recipe dry and just add the appropriate water.  It can be used to drink though you may want to add a little sugar and vanilla and be sure to drink it COLD!
Drinking.  If you make it with cold water it is great to drink.  It is similar to skim milk.  It can be used for baking and any other milk use.  It’s better to reconstitute it and then add it to recipes as you would fresh milk.
