Has anyone tried this?

My interest isn't so much for drinking but for those shelf items that need milk for prep.

It works just fine for your cooking recipe's. Like shock said you will never mistake it for the real thing.

I add powdered milk into the making before leaving, when I'm making up stuff like bannock, or pancakes. I'm playing with it now looking for a instant sort of cream sauce.....

If your looking for more of a whole milk taste I would look around for Nido brand. Nido

+1 for Nido. Carnation instant does not even come close to tasting like milk. Nido comes very close to tasting like whole milk not 1%.

I switched to NIDO years ago and won't be switching back.

Like some others, I add it ahead of time to mixes that I want to prepare in camp (things like cornbread, bannock, etc.) and I also take a small jar along to add to instant oatmeal before adding the water. A little added makes the hot chocolate richer, too.

Because I have bought a large container of it, I always have it at home in case I run out of milk and am making some recipe that calls for milk, too.

We find Nido in our local wally world. I have noticed that it comes in smaller sizes now. Last year I had to buy a pretty big container. I didn't use all of it before I through it out. I agree with what other say about it.

In some stores you will have to look in the Hispanic section if they have one to find it.
