* Baker's Dry Milk is a nonfat milk product that has been processed at higher temperatures to destroy certain enzymes naturally found in milk.  These enzymes will degrade the gluten structure in bread dough.  Because of this, commercial bakeries always use Baker's Dry Milk in their yeasted products rather than the consumer dry milk found in grocery stores.
