Is there some reason that "dried milk" is always the non-fat kind?  
Dried milk seems ah "lacking". I'm not sure whether it is really the  
drying process or the fact that they start with fat-free milk in the  
first place, which is already a bit laking in taste and texture. Would  
full fat, or even 2% milk go bad if you dried it? Or is it just that  
they're removing the fat to sell at a higher price elsewhere?

<<< (I grew up learning about filled milk, and even drank some in the  
80's in Japan, although my Home Ec textbooks no longer mentioned it  
while teaching there) >>>

Is this a mis-typing? or is there really a "filled milk"? If so, what  
is it?
