Dry Milk

inmexico i found a product called mimarca leche de polvo.
has a much better flavor than does nido milk and fewer additives. great for coffee!!!! dissolves faster and more thoroughly than does nido milk.

Re: dry milk

Good to know of new ( to us) products that work and taste good. I use PEAK instant whole milk and have been happy with the real milk taste and blend-ability, but I never know when I might not be able to find it. Have never used NIDO, but will keep MIMARCA on the provisioning list as a substitute for PEAK. Thanks!

Re: dry milk

Wiki tells me that Nido is intentionally designed as a nutritionally-fortified milk product, but that Nestle bought Klim from Borden's, and that Klim apparently is "just" whole powdered milk. The two are usually available side-by-side onthe same shelves, since Nestle distributes them both.

I'm sorry to hear the local coffee is so bad it needs milk to make it palateable.<VBG>

Re: dry milk

We use Walmart house brand powdered milk. Mixes easily and when chilled tastes fine.

Re: dry milk

i dislike nonfat milk products. of any and all brands. they sukk and do not do what whole milk does do, which is to act as a medicinal product for coating guts.
nonfat also adds to the inability of females to produce eggs --aka--infertility in humans.

i have never seen klim--i doubt its existence-
-wiki is only made of folks ' remarks, not fact..i donot trust wiki..might wanna look up your stuff a bit better-- aint no sucha thing in any store i ever bought nido in..LOL....yes nestle makes or distributes nido-- but i have yet to see the brand klim. LOL -- ye might wanna shop for it before talking of it. i think you will find it unfindable in real world.

is not the coffee is bad--is that i am not able to drink it without half and half, not able to be found here, so i use powdered whole milk and chocolate in it..lOL--i never did like taste of coffee--i use it for asthma--the caffeine imitates and is cousin to theophylline and i dono t have to take that horrid medicine.

Re: dry milk

Half-and-half is available as "media crema" in Mexico and other Latin American countries -- either in cans or in 1-cup (250 ml) boxes (TetraPaks). Great for coffee and also for making into sour cream by adding 1 to 2 teaspoons of white vinegar or lemon/lime juice.

You can also find cans of media crema in many US grocery stores in the Latin/Mexican food aisle.

media crema is not proper half and half-is CANNED.
cold half and half is made by jersey dairies and is sold as crema para cafe in a liter box in fridge. is hard to find. therefore i am using mimarca leche de polvo entera. jersey crema para cafe has no additives whatsoever and is awesome in coffee as it is pure half and half.
the media crema in boxes(brand LALA) has guar gum,sodium citrate, sodium phosphate, , and carrageenan added. yukkkkk.
yes--i actually READ the containers and i DO read spanish nicely.

whipping cream is crema para batir and is awesome in coffee. is cold in a box or bottle.
sour cream in mexico is called crema. is readily available in any kind of packaging in cold or even in cans if that is how you refer your milks. i dont like the aftertaste of canned milk products. crema can be found in fridge section all ready for whatever ye wanna make with SOUR cream.

Re: dry milk

Crema is not the same thing as what we call commercial sour cream -- crema acidifica is. And if you don't have a lot of room in the refrigerator, and are planning to be away from town for a while, it can be useful to make your own sour cream from ingredients that don't require refrigeration. Many times when cruising, we like to go off the beaten path -- and that often means that we can't get our preferred products.

ifr you READ the bottle of crema, you will see that it has ACID in it to sour it up..LOL... i READ my packaging to find that which does me the best formy money. i have bought every single type of crema and cream here--i know of what i speak. i also know spanish and can read it with 100 percent comprehension. i KNOW what is in my products. crema is sour cream used in tacos and on strawberries with brown sugar(in usa). i dono tseek usa products in foreign lands s i already knhow it isnt gonna happen forunder hundreds of dollars. i use native stuff. if there is no half and half, as ther eis not here, i will find a reasonable substitute for my needs,. i hate wasting money and i alredy learned on a previous visit to mexico that CREMA is SOUR CEAM. it all has acid in it to sour it up. read your labels. you too will be enlightened.
hving endured sna diego many years too long, i have been able to research in mexico more than the average gringo. i am not a newbie to mexico . i know what i am buying and what is on the shelves. thankyou. i aalso am aware that crema isnt like our sour cream--is mexican sour cream...LOL

oh yes, and as i am here and now in mazatlan, is fun to argue a point i have in front of me.

Re: dry milk

Klim is right next to Nido here in Panama. If you come from a country where Parmalat equals UHT milk, you should try the local brands in Central/South America as they are so much better that we completely switched to those.

ciao!
Nick.
