You know baking is all about science, but it’s all about control as well. When you use unsalted butter in a recipe, you can control the exact amount of salt in your baked good. When you use salted butter, you have no idea how much salt you’re using because it varies between each brand you see at the store. Chowhound tells us the exact amount of salt in popular brands and some are double the amount of others! And this doesn’t even include store-brand butter, so who the heck knows how much salt is hiding in those. The flavor in your baked good is completely compromised, especially if butter is the main flavor– think poundcake, sugar cookies, pie crust etc. It doesn’t matter as much in cooking since you can taste as you go, but it’s crucial to control the salt in baked recipes. Pair this with the added salt in your recipe and you’ll wind up with super salty poundcake.
Skimmed milk is generally free from dietary fat or is fat free and has less than 0.5 gram of fat with no added ingredients containing fat. It is not as ‘creamy’ as whole milk and appears lighter and thinner in consistency. Many health experts vouch for non-fat milk, considering it is calorie-free and light on your tummy. According to Dr. Sunali Sharma, Dietitian & Nutritionist, Amandeep Hospital, “Skimmed milk or low fat milk is great if you are planning to curb your calorie intake. A glass of full fat milk might contain up to 10 grams of fat and roughly 176 Kilo-calories (Kcal) whereas the same amount of skimmed milk might contain somewhere between 2 grams to 0 gram of fat and somewhere between 89-118 Kilo-calories (Kcal). Also, skimmed milk has slightly more calcium and protein when compared to full fat milk and has no added sugar.”
Salt is a preservative and therefore, salted butter has a longer shelf life than unsalted butter. We’re talking 3-4 months of shelf time. For fresher butter, reach for the unsalted variety. (Or heck! Make your own!) However, some brands add “natural flavor” to unsalted butter, which extends its shelf life (not quite as long as salt). This is usually lactic acid, which also helps regulate its pH.
Powdered Milk manufacture is a simple process now carried out on a large scale. It involves the gentle removal of water at the lowest possible cost under stringent hygiene conditions while retaining all the desirable natural properties of the milk – colour, flavour, solubility, nutritional value. Whole (full cream) milk contains, typically, about 87% water and skim milk contains about 91% water.
Milk Protein Concentrate (MPC) is any type of concentrated milk product that contains 40–90% milk protein. MPC contains micellar casein, whey proteins, and bioactive proteins in the same ratio found in milk. As the protein content of MPC increases, the lactose levels decrease. This high-protein low-lactose ratio makes MPC an excellent ingredient for protein-fortified beverages and foods and low-carbohydrate foods.
MPC is typically made from skim milk resulting in fat levels of less than 3%. Common MPC products are MPC-42, MPC-70 and MPC-80, which contain 42%, 70% or 80% protein respectively.
Milk Protein Concentrates are ideal for a large range of applications, including cheese products, cultured products, dairy-based beverages, pediatric nutrition, medical nutrition (enteral foods), weight management products, powdered dietary supplements and sports nutrition products. In general, MPCs provide a concentrated source of protein for nutritional value, sensory and functional properties in the final application.
