The skim milk powder was manufactured following the procedure adopted by Patel and Mistry (1997) with some modifications.
The skim milk powder was then analyzed for moisture content by oven drying at 105C, protein content by Kjeldahl method, acidity by titration (AOAC, 2005), fat content by Gerber method and ash content by incineration at 600C in a muffle furnace (Atherton and Newlander, 1982).
Skim milk powder samples were prepared for microstructure examination through SEM as described by Kalab (1981) and Kalab et al.
The physico-chemical analysis of the skim milk powder showed that composition of buffalo skim milk varied significantly from that of cow as observed in previous studies by Caric and Kalab (1987) and Shiratsuchi et al.
