Concentrated milk is obtained through the evaporation of milk (whole or low-fat) until it’s half or one third of its full volume.
It’s a viscous yellowish liquid, with a characteristic taste and aroma.
There are two different products under the label of concentrated milk, condensed and evaporated milk:
- Evaporated milk: it’s the product obtained from the concentration of milk by evaporation, without the addition of sweeteners. It is then sterilized in airtight packages.
- Condensed milk: it’s the product obtained from the partial elimination of the water content in milk (whole, low fat or skimmed), and put down to a treatment of pasteurization and preserved with the addition of sucrose.
