By Donald E. Faulkner on September 14, 2008
I started looking online for a milk alternative since I'm in college, need breakfast, and don't want to pay $4.50 for a half gallon of milk. I decided on Saco after reading reviews, and this stuff rocks. It tastes better, drinks fresher, and doesn't give me gas in the least bit. I'm never buying store milk again.

I decided to switch from grocery store milk to SACO's powder for mathematical reasons. As a single lady who uses milk primarily for my tea, I rarely finish a one-gallon bottle before it sours (hate that race to use it all!), and buying half gallon containers absolutely bugs me, as it costs five bucks for two (purchased one at a time) instead of three skins for a single gallon. Plus, there's the inconvenience of schlepping to the store every few days for another half-gallon. I'm a "stock up and go shopping as infrequently as possible" type.

Here's my solution for mixing and storing SACO milk.

1.) Buy two plastic half gallons of store milk and rinse the bottles out thoroughly when they're empty.

2.) Mix up a quart of SACO in a large Pyrex (glass) handled measuring cup and use its convenient spout to pour the milk into an empty grocery bottle. Repeat the process. (Note: having the Pyrex device clearly marked off in red sure makes measuring the powder easy. Just start with 8 oz. of SACO, then add water to the quart line.)

3.) Put the cap on the filled bottle and vigorously shake this half-gallon to assure all the SACO has dissolved. Refrigerate. (A bottom shelf is best, as it's colder.)

4.) When you get down near to the last of that bottle, mix up a second one and refrigerate it. This way, you'll always have a supply of milk on hand. Rinse out the first container when it's empty and leave the cap off. Give it a quick rinse just before re-using.

I chose grocery bottles for storage as it satisfies a life-long habit of pouring milk from one.

This is really good tasting and you always have an easy way to have milk any time you want it. All you do is add water. What could be easier? I would recommend this product to anyone.

When Bob's Red Mill went up, I decided to give this one a try, and I'm glad I did. Bob's is good, but not so much for drinking straight. I haven't enjoyed a glass of ice cold milk in a while, it was great.

Comes in one big bag inside of a big box, so I transferred some to another container.

After I completed my order with Amazon , I went to get some stuff at Food4less and found the 4 Lbs powdered milk box for $13.60. So, if you are thinking you are getting a good deal by buying your powdered milk at Amazon, I suggest you check your local grocer first. Bye.

Powdered milk doesn't really taste like fresh milk, so don't expect it to. This is the best tasting powdered milk I've found, though--the closest to fresh. Most of them taste cardboard-y; this one just tastes kind of cooked. I have a toddler, and I leave a pre-measured amount in a sippy cup in the car, so that I just have to add water if we're out and have a milk "emergency." My favorite use for it is camping, where weight and refrigeration are really issues.

A word to the wise, though--don't buy this to save money on milk. It works out to about 40 cents more per gallon than I'm currently paying for fresh skim milk.

This is fine for baking but for a "mix and drink" milk product I'm not satisfied. As per directions we mixed it and let it sit overnight in the fridge. We tried a "folgers blind switch" on the kids and every one of the older kids thought the milk was old. It has a definite cardboard flavor to it.

We're normally Braums Skim drinkers but with milk almost hitting 5 bux a gallon I hate buying 10 gallons/month when there's a possibility I can find powdered milk for less.

We will keep looking for a good dry milk but this isn't it.

Update:
We've got the equivalent of 10 gallons of this stuff so we're trying to figure out how to use it (I despise wasting stuff). So far here's the results:

Hot Chocolate: Drinkable, but cardboard taste is still heavy. The kids find it passable.
Bread Baking: Excellent. No funny taste. Guess the yeast and baking fix it.
Cat treat: Yeah, the cat drinks it. If all else fails, right?

Compared to the price of fresh milk per quart where I live, I'm saving money using dry milk. Other dry milks I tried were OK on cereal or in bread machine recipes, but were nasty to drink. Saco is the first I actually can drink and enjoy! Highly recommended and I will continue to order this brand as long as it is available.
