Title: SOLID MILK AND THE METHOD OF MANUFACTURING THEREOF
Abstract:
[Problem] The object of invention is to provide solid milk with favorable solubility and enough strength and the method of manufacturing the solid milk. [Means] The solid milk of the invention has X-ray diffraction pattern of its surface area that has a main peak of 2theta= 10 - 15 degrees at 2theta = 10 - 11 degrees or at 2theta = 12 - 13 degrees. A method for the manufacture of solid milk comprises compressing powdered milk to obtain compressed powdered milk; humidifying the compressed powdered milk to obtain humidified compressed powdered milk; and drying the humidified compressed powdered milk to obtain the solid milk. A part of amorphous lactose at the surface of the solid milk 12 is crystallized at the steps of humidifying step and drying.
