Evaporated Milk

What is Evaporated Milk?

Evaporated milk is a canned milk product where about 60% of the water content has been removed. It is made by heating regular milk to remove water through evaporation.

It is a versatile dairy product widely used in the food and beverage industry for its concentrated flavor and extended shelf life.

Evaporated milk should not be confused with sweetened condensed milk, which has added sugar, giving it a sweet taste.

Information About Evaporated Milk

Evaporated milk is used to enrich products with rich creaminess, add sweet or savory depth, and to extend shelf life. It is often used in sauces, dairy desserts, dips, ice creams, dressings, and more to create a creamy and flavorful consistency.

Derived from milk, evaporated milk is produced by inflicting heat on milk to evaporate the excess water. This reduces the volume, but enhances the richness and thickness of the milk. All essential nutrients are retained throughout this process making evaporated milk rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals.

Appearance: Evaporated milk typically has a creamy, pale yellow color. It is thicker and more concentrated than regular milk. The texture is smooth and uniform.

Fat content: Higher fat content than that found in regular milk, 7-8%.

Sugar content: Despite being semi sweet, evaporated milk is unsweetened and contains no added sugars. It gains its sweet taste due to caramelization during the heating process.

Water content: Typically about 60% of water is removed during the evaporation process, resulting in a more concentrated milk product.
