Skim milk contains slightly more calcium and protein than whole milk and contains no added sugar. It’s loaded with protein, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin D, and vitamin A, making it a high-quality, complete protein source.

Skimmed milk is mainly used in confectionery foods in particular. Manufacturers use skim milk in its powdered form in baking recipes to enhance the tenderness of foods such as donuts, cakes, and bread. Adding skim milk powder to bakery and confectionery products renders firmness thus making them tender. It is also used in the preparation of chocolates, savouries, pastries and other confections to improve flavor and water-holding capacity allowing the baked product to stay fresh longer. However, to compensate for saturated fat, sugar is added to skim milk, which can lead to health problems such as diabetes and hypoglycemia.

Additionally, the dairy industry often adds powdered milk to skim milk as a protein enrichment, causing oxidation of cholesterol in the milk. This leads to plaque buildup in the arteries, inflammation in the body, and contributes to heart disease. These adverse effects of skimmed milk on the human body are limiting the growth of the skimmed milk market. Additionally, the increase in the use of alternative dairy products prepared from milk, derived from various vegetable sources such as almond, soybean, rice, coconut, and others, is also affecting the growth of the market skimmed milk. Additionally, skimmed milk costs a bit more than regular milk, which also hinders the market growth in developing regions such as China and India, as it has a large middle-class population susceptible to price. Casein and caseinates, which are widely used as food ingredients in products such as dairy desserts, milk-based drinks, sports nutrition, confectionery, meat products and non-dairy creamers, are generally prepared from skimmed milk by acid precipitation. The increased use of casein and caseinates by the food industry is further fueling the demand for skimmed milk.
