What is concentrated milk?

Michael T. Murray, ND
Naturopathic Medicine

Concentrated milks are made by the partial removal of water from fluid milk. These products are pasteurized and may be homogenized and/or fortified with vitamin D. Evaporated milk is made by removing about 60 percent of milk's water, homogenizing it, standardizing it to the required percentages of components, adding vitamins (vitamin D up to 25 IU per ounce; vitamin A is optional), and stabilizing the product.
