Milk Powder Storage Tips and Guidelines
Store milk powders in airtight containers. Strive to remove all air from the container before sealing it. Paper bags are good choice to use as they make it easier to remove all air from the bag before sealing it. When using paper bags, however, it's even more important that you store them in a dry location.
Although some of our milk powders have a shelf life that spans longer than six months, we recommend using all milk powders within six months for maximum product freshness.
You can generally tell when milk powder goes bad as it begins to smell "off" that is characteristically different from the aroma of the same powder when it is fresh. Educate your nose by smelling each of your powders when you first get them and throughout the duration of your use of them. Some milk powders have a naturally distinctive aroma to begin with, so it's important to know what each smells like in its natural, fresh state.
"Each time I use your Web site, I am thrilled with how complex and thorough the information is and yet how intuitive and simple the site is to use. I do the majority of my shopping online and work as part of a huge global company's knowledge distribution arm, so I review and use lots of sites. The FNWL site is the best I have encountered from a consumer prospective. It must take an incredible amount of resources to maintain and I just want to say thank you for going to that level of effort! I have learned so much from reading the detailed product information and loved the items I've purchased. Thank you!"
