SCHOOL LUNCH RECIPES USING NONFAT DRY MILK
When the fat and water are removed from milk, the product that
results is known as "nonfat dry milk." Nonfat dry milk contains about
the same nutrients as fluid skim milk--the high-quality proteins, the
rich supply of calcium and riboflavin. Considering its high nutritive
value and comparatively low cost, nonfat dry milk offers an excellent
means of improving school lunches. It is easy to use and convenient to
How to Use Nonfat Dry Milk
Nonfat dry milk may be reconstituted with water--that is, made into
a liquid--for use as a beverage or in such dishes as soups, gravies,
sauces, and custards. One cup (4 ounces) nonfat dry milk plus 1 quart
water equals about 1 quart fluid skim milk. In the recipes in this publication
a higher proportion of nonfat dry milk is used to increase the
nutritive value of school lunches.
To reconstitute nonfat dry milk, sprinkle it on top of warm water and
beat well with a rotary beater, whip, or power mixer. This method
helps to keep the dry milk from lumping and sticking to the mixing
bowl. Never add the dry milk to a boiling mixture.
The liquid milk scorches easily. When heating it, use a double boiler,
or keep the heat low.
When recipes contain a large proportion of dry ingredients, as for
bread, biscuits, muffins, and cakes, nonfat dry milk may be mixed with
the other dry ingredients.
For uniformly successful results with recipes, weigh rather than
measure nonfat dry milk. If it is necessary to measure, stir the dry
milk with a spoon, then lift it lightly into a measuring cup.
Store nonfat dry milk in a cool place, preferably in a refrigerator.
Keep it tightly covered. If it is exposed to the air, it absorbs moisture,
becomes lumpy, and its flavor changes.
