SKIM MILK

QUESTION

Hi Chef,
Can Skim Milk be frozen for use at a later date?
Thanks, Tim

ANSWER:

Hello Tim,

Yes, you can freeze skim milk, or regular milk.  Just be sure there is enough 'headspace' in the container to allow for the expansion as it freezes - about 1 1/2 inches in a quart.

It can take a while to freeze solid.  It is best to use it within a month.

Skim Milk is now called Fat Free milk and must contain less than 0.5% butterfat. (The USDA changed milk labeling laws in the late 1990s. Many recipes still call it Skim Milk).

Skim milk contains more calcium than whole milk because most of the calcium in milk is found in the water content not the fat content. When the milk fat (butterfat) is removed, the relative percentage of calcium remaining in the 'skimmed' milk is higher.
