Spray-drying buttermilk, obtained by churning cream into butter, produces buttermilk granules. While buttermilk has a greater fat content, its composition is similar to skimmed milk. It contains a lot of phospholipids and milk fat globule membranes. Due to its unique composition and several useful features, buttermilk powder (BMP) is a desirable substance for various uses. Proteins in buttermilk powder can operate as emulsifiers, stabilizing oil-water interfaces in products such as sauces, dressings, or ice creams.

Processing of Dry Buttermilk Powder

Buttermilk powder is a dried milk product with a maximum water level of 4% and a fat content of 4–8%.

It is created using fresh, pasteurized, delicious buttermilk from a butter manufacturing facility (100 percent cow's milk) and gently dried by spraying.

The buttermilk powder contains at least 34% protein in fat-free dry matter. In addition, it has 3% fatty acids and around 48% milk sugar.

Recombination into fresh buttermilk: 90 g buttermilk powder and 910 g water generate 1 kilogram of buttermilk.

Draining the water from liquid buttermilk that is made by churning cream into butter and pasteurizing it before condensing, buttermilk powder, dry buttermilk, or dried buttermilk powder is produced.

It has 4% or more milk fat and 5% moisture by weight or less. It must have a protein concentration of no less than 30%. It may not contain, or be derived from, nonfat dry milk/skimmed milk powder, dry whey, or products other than buttermilk and has no additional preservatives, neutralizing agents, or other chemicals. Microbial development is stopped by eliminating as much moisture as feasible. There are two types of dried buttermilk powder: roller-dried and spray-dried. Also, Buttermilk powder can be produced from sweet cream buttermilk or acidified buttermilk but sweet cream buttermilk is preferred because it is more stable.

The Health Concerns About Buttermilk

Due to its high salt content and ability to trigger allergic responses in certain people, buttermilk may potentially have a number of negative health effects.

  • Sodium levels may be elevated
  • Some people may experience allergic reactions or stomach problems

Buttermilk should not be consumed by anybody who is allergic to milk, not only those who are lactose intolerant. Milk allergy can result in stomach distress, hives, wheezing, vomiting, and even anaphylaxis in some people.


After pasteurization and concentration with an evaporator, the buttermilk is spray-dried to produce buttermilk powder. Typically, the product is light yellow in color and has a rich, creamy flavor.

The buttermilk powder's high phospholipid content makes it valuable to food manufacturers and the dairy sector. Good emulsifying characteristics result from this. Buttermilk powder and skim milk powder have many of the same chemical constituents. Buttermilk has a little larger fat content (4–8%) than skim milk powder, but both have an equal amount of protein.

The flavor of a good buttermilk powder is very appealing. High amounts of phospholipids, excellent solubility, homogeneous fat content, and good emulsifying characteristics produce a rich, creamy flavor. Soon buttermilk powder will be included in Chaltafarm's products portfolio.
