The best milk for your long-term food storage!
Milk is an essential part of your long-term food storage, so make sure you’re not overlooking it! I have tried several different brands of food storage milk and honestly, this is the ONLY milk worth storing. You literally can’t tell the difference between this and the milk we get from Costco.
In fact, I love the freeze dried instant milk so much that it made the cut for my top 12 items I keep in my food storage.

Melanie's Notes on Instant Milk:
I cannot overemphasize how much I love this milk.
I not only store this by the case for possible future emergencies, but I also like to keep a can in my pantry for those times when we run out of milk a little sooner than I was expecting.
As long as my kids don’t see where it’s coming from, they have no clue that it came from our food storage!
You’ll also want to consider what you plan on keeping the milk in once it’s made.
I had a very specific list of features that I was looking for:
- Glass (I didn’t want it to feel like a cheap plastic juice pitcher)
- Airtight (I didn’t want the milk to start taking on the flavor of whatever else was in the fridge)
- Easy to pour (Not like those huge Rubbermaid things with no handle)
- Dishwasher safe (No explanation needed)
After trying a few different options, I settled on these glass milk bottles.
They really are the perfect size; not too big (because if they held a full gallon, they would get really heavy with all that glass), and not too small (so I don’t feel like I am constantly refilling it).
How much do you need?
Here’s a chart that will help you determine how many cans you would need to meet your food storage goals.
Example: If your family drinks 2 gallons of milk per week, and you want a year’s supply of milk, you would need 6 cases of family cans.
