How are THRIVE powdered products (eggs, shortening, etc.) made? What is the main differences between the Instant and Powdered milk?

THRIVE powders are made through a process called spray drying. Spray drying preserves shelf life by converting perishable liquid products into long-lasting dry powders. The main differences between THRIVE Powdered and Instant Milk is that Instant Milk goes through a process to make it instant and is fortified with vitamins A and D to give it a fresh milk taste, both of which make it great for drinking. Powdered Milk was developed for cooking and takes more time to dilute correctly, so it does not have as smooth of a texture when reconstituted. Both powders, however, may be used for either drinking or cooking.
