Dried milk is another modern product, foreshadowed by the Indian condensed milk khoya (see milk reduction). This is evaporated and coagulated by slow heating, often carried to the point at which the product is quite dry and crumbly. It is not intended to keep, but is used as an ingredient in confectionery. Dried milk is now made by either drum or spray drying.
