Dried milk powder?

Anyone spotted where to get dried milk powder? I'm trying to put together a box of camping kitchen stuff, and thought this might be useful for baking, sauces, etc. Or even drinking if we got really desperate...

Thanks a lot.

Re: Dried milk powder?

All Migros and Coop have it. It is however placed with the breakfast products so it isn't that easy to find

Re: Dried milk powder?

Both Migros and Coop stock it near the baking items. It's in a silver and blue bag but I can't remember the name of it.

Our local Migros has it next to the cake decorating stuff which is even more bizarre...

Re: Dried milk powder?

you get dry milk powder in migros,(have a good look in the milk section, it is normally placed near the condensed milk) and you even get it in skt, the srilankan shop in quellenstrasse.

Re: Dried milk powder?

Oh, sorry, I didn't realise it was so mainstream! So far I've looked in a large Casino store, and LeShop online - I'll try hunting around weird shelf locations in the regular supermarkets.

Thanks for all the suggestions; I'll take a trip into town later this week but in the meantime if anyone thinks of a product name I'd be grateful, as searching for 'lait', 'poudre', that sort of thing on LeShop is throwing up nothing.

Cheers, guys.

Ta, I tried that already and it just gave me a list of baby formula milks. I find the search on LeShop very precise - 'ail' (garlic) for example, only ever gives fresh garlic but doesn't mention the other garlics in the spice rack, the little glass jars and so on. Sometimes having an actual product name works well - I found 'Quicksoup' (cup-a-soup; also for the camping box) earlier this way.

It can be a nightmare to find it, as has happened to me many times. My local Migros puts it in between the coffee & teabags. Bag is silver with blue and probably called Magermichpulver in German.

Re: Dried milk powder?

I very much doubt if LeShop will have it. In store just ask an assistant for "milchpulver". Sorry, I can't think of the actual name either.

Re: Dried milk powder?

For completeness, I searched my French-based LeShop for 'milchpulver'. Which gave me none of the previously mentioned babymilks, etc, but did throw up coconut milk powder. Which didn't appear in the previous search for 'lait' or 'poudre', despite having both in its title.

Trip to an actual shop it is, then. Curses - browsing supermarkets always makes me spend money.

Re: Dried milk powder?

I normally find it in the coffee section of Migros. They should sell one in a silver and blue bag called "Rapilait."

Could you or someone else post a link to such a store in ZH?
What about health stores? I checked Demeter on farmy.ch, no success.
Any French brands as well?



I also looked for it on Amazon.de. There's SHB Swiss Milch Traum, Sucofin, and Nestlé Gloria Magermilchpulver they deliver to Switzerland.


I use Rapilait for the 1st time... for my coffee. Bio or not bio.. it doesn't matter... I'm looking for bigger packages.

Re: Dried milk powder?

The milk powder you can get in Switzerland is pretty nasty (me thinks).

If you want the full cream powder (for example Nestlé NIDO) you'll find it in the Asian shops.
In Africa it came accross as a life-saver. When I bought it back here it kind of lost it's appeal.
Still better than the Raiplait stuff .... Coop is also skimmed milk powder.

Re: Dried milk powder?

Both Migros and Coop have dried milk powder, 500 gr/4.10sfr (I use with cocoa to make my own unsweetened hot cocoa blend)

Migros:in the same aisle as coffee, near the tins of condensed milk, blue/red/silver packaging

Coop: in the aisle w/UHP milk, blue/silver packaging

Well yes, it's powdered dried milk, what do you expect? Skimmed or full cream may be more or less common in the shops, but I fail to see how the product could be any different in other countries.
