Milk is a crucial component in many diets around the world. Due to its perishable nature, fluid milk is processed into milk powder by removing water from it through evaporation and spray drying processes. Powdered milk and fresh milk share several major nutritional similarities. They are excellent sources of essential minerals and vitamins such as magnesium, calcium, zinc, potassium as well as vitamins A, D, E and K. Unlike fluid milk, milk powder is non-perishable, does not require refrigeration and is less expensive.

- The demand for milk powder is driven by its numerous applications in the food and beverage industry.
- Whole milk powder is the most popular product type, accounting for more than a half of the total production.
- The European Union and China represent the largest producer and consumer of milk powder, respectively.
