Nonfat dry milk is white to light cream in color with a clean dairy flavor. It is manufactured by removing water from pasteurized skim milk. It contains 5% or less moisture (by weight) and 1.5% or less milkfat (by weight). If the fat content is more than 1.5%, it must be declared in the ingredient statement. By removing moisture to the greatest extent possible, microbial growth is prevented.
