Did you know that on average, each American drinks more than 20 gallons of milk each year? That’s a lot of milk! But what most people don’t realize is that milk doesn’t always have to come from the gallon container in the refrigeration section at the grocery store. It can be a food storage staple that you keep on your shelf! With powdered milk, you can still have the taste and nutrition readily available—no fridge or electricity required.

Why Is Milk Important In Your Diet?
Milk is a great source of many vitamins and nutrients we need to keep our bodies healthy and strong, which is why it’s important to have powdered milk in your emergency food storage. Here are just a few of the vital nutrients and benefits from milk:
· Calcium - It is essential to get the recommended amount of daily calcium to stay healthy and, hands down, milk is the best source of calcium for your body. Calcium keeps our bones and teeth healthy and strong, protects us from migraine headaches, can prevent childhood obesity and aids in losing unwanted fats.
· Vitamin D - Since Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium, almost all milk products are fortified with Vitamin D. It also promotes bone growth and strength, reduces the risk of brittle bones, reduces inflammation and increases immune function.
· Rehydration- Milk has a high amount of water molecules to keep bodies hydrated. This is especially important for children, who are constantly active and running around. Encourage your children to drink milk instead of sugar-filled sodas, which can actually cause dehydration and tooth decay.
High Quality Powdered Milk
Powdered milk tends to have a bad reputation for a chalky taste and texture, but Augason Farms’ offers powdered milk products that are tasty and nutritious, especially when chilled. Our popular Morning Moo’s Milk Alternative was actually the first product sold by Augason Farms, and is high in Vitamin D and is rich in riboflavin—a vitamin essential for metabolic energy. Riboflavin is also important for maintaining a healthy gastrointestinal tract and healthy eyes, skin, live and heart. Both of Augason Farms’ powdered milk and dry milk alternatives are essential components of your long-term emergency preparedness and food storage supply.
Whether you’re looking to add to your emergency food storage or stock your pantry, this week is a great time to stock up on our delicious powdered milk and dry milk alternatives.
