Nonfat Dry Milk is spray-dried, powdered milk. When reconstituted as a 10% solution in deionized water, it is equivalent to Nonfat milk. NFDM contains no more than 5% moisture by weight following the spray-drying process, and no more than 1.5% milk fat. Additionally, NFDM contains 34-37% protein by weight, and 49.5-52% lactose. Because of its use in food manufacturing, it also must meet certain microbiological standards, including aerobic plate counts of <10,000 cfu/g, and test negative for Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria, and coagulase-positive Staphylococcus.

A 10% solution of NFDM is recommended by the FDA’s Bacteriological Analysis Manual (BAM)1 for the enrichment of candy products, including chocolate.
