    I can buy nonfat powdered milk 50 pounds for $119 .00 from a bakery supplier local. If I store this in 5 gallon mylar bags vacuum and use oxygen absorber. What is the shelf life. [yack]

    I bought that same powdered milk when I worked at a bakery years ago. I stored it in 5 gallon buckets with plastic liners using dry ice, and then forgot about it. Opened it up and gave it a try about 3 years later when I was moving. Tasted like crap when it was fresh and didn't taste any better when it was old. I used some of it to make macNcheese and it tasted ok... course you can make a box of .25 macNcheese with just water and it tastes ok too.

    Shelf life depends on type of non-fat milk....

    Shelf life depends on type of non-fat milk, method of storage and environmental factors. Hope you find this information useful.

    Thats a good price for 50 lbs. I just paid $110.00 for 25 lbs.

    My wife and I do the storage a little different. Like most of our preps, in is in use all the time, and used daily. When we buy 2% milk we split it in haft, and then mix it 50-50 with powered milk.

    We break the powered milk into serving size then vacuum seal 2 servings to a bag. It's then stored in non-food grade buckets. This the entire bucket isn't exposed every time we open a bucket.

    It's a little messy, but it works for us.

    I really like the milk Emergency Essentials sells in #10 cans with oxygen absorbers. Tastes great and lasts forever. Pretty sure it's lots more than $120 for 50 lbs. though.
