CARNATION® - The milk that cooks

CARNATION® Evaporated Milk is made by cooking milk to remove more than half of its natural water content. This results in a thicker and creamier milk than fresh milk. This milk also has a slightly toasted or caramelized taste. These characteristics make CARNATION® Evaporated Milk a perfect addition to savoury and sweet dishes. For persons desiring to reduce their fat intake, CARNATION® Light Evaporated Milk is also available.

Let’s look at a few tips and tricks to jazz up your savoury dishes utilizing CARNATION® Evaporated Milk:

Thick, rich, creamy sauces and porridges

A good way to add creaminess and richness to your cheese sauces, porridges, without breaking the bank. CARNATION Evaporated Milk adds that rich flavour and texture to create silky smooth sauces. Substitute an equal portion of CARNATION Evaporated Milk for the same quantity whole milk called for in the recipe.

Creamy Soups

Creamy corn soups, seafood chowders and a creamy pumpkin soup are just a few soups that CARNATION Evaporated Milk helps to enhance. CARNATION Evaporated Milk can be added at the middle or the end of preparation as it cooks well and hardly ever separates during cooking. The natural toasted flavour of the milk makes a perfect marriage of flavours. CARNATION Light Evaporated Milk can be used to create lighter, reduced fat versions of your favourite recipes.
