Powdered Milk vs Fresh Milk
Powdered milk is manufactured by evaporating all moisture from Milk. Milk is a liquid produced from the mammary glands of animals.

Due to this reason this is one of the products frequently used as part of relief supplies that are transported as aid during war time, natural disasters and emergencies. This can easily be reconstituted to milk by mixing it in drinking water. Once this is mixed in water it needs to be treated as Fresh milk and needs to be refrigerated or consumed immediately.
Fresh milk is now provided in tetra packs and is generally processed through pasteurization and flash heating. This increases its shelf life and it does not need to be boiled before consumption. However, once the pack is opened it needs to be refrigerated and consumed as normal milk.
