Abstract

See full text

The present invention relates to compressed solid milk tablets, a method for producing the same and a modular system for carrying out said method. The method comprises: (a) compressing milk powder to obtain compressed solid milk units with a mechanical strength between 10 kPa and 300 kPa, (b) humidifying the compressed solid milk units by exposing them in a humidifying chamber to humid air having a relative humidity of more than 95% and a temperature between 60 and 90° C., wherein the humid air comprises condensed water vapour, and (c) drying the humidified and compressed solid milk units to obtain compressed solid milk tablets. The tablets obtained by this method have a mechanical strength between 20 kPa and 1000 kPa, a core/crust structure, wherein the crust comprises milk particles that are solidified and fused in parallel and perpendicular planes, relative to the tablet surface, and a friability of less than 5%.
