Milk Powder Storage Tips and Guidelines

Store milk powders in airtight containers. Strive to remove all air from the container before sealing it. Paper bags are good choice to use as they make it easier to remove all air from the bag before sealing it. When using paper bags, however, it's even more important that you store them in a dry location.

Although some of our milk powders have a shelf life that spans longer than six months, we recommend using all milk powders within six months for maximum product freshness.

You can generally tell when milk powder goes bad as it begins to smell "off" that is characteristically different from the aroma of the same powder when it is fresh. Educate your nose by smelling each of your powders when you first get them and throughout the duration of your use of them. Some milk powders have a naturally distinctive aroma to begin with, so it's important to know what each smells like in its natural, fresh state.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
