The hygroscopicity of the malta powder was in the range of 1.45 to 6.38% while the degree of caking was in between 2.04 to 4.25%. Minimum solubility of malta powder was about 72.7% and it increased up to 91.3%. Flowability time of powder was in between 13.4 to 19.8 sec. Ascorbic acid varied from 21.426 to 54.761 (mg/100g) and the beta carotene was in the range of 10 to 51(µg/100g). Value of L , a and b was varied from 53.1 to 82.79, 27.25 to 105.92 and -15.92 to 73.67 respectively. Optimum level of ingredients obtained by using simultaneous optimization of hygroscopicity, degree of caking, flowability time and solubility were: 7.92% carboxy methyl cellulose, 85°C temperature, 1.55% whole milk powder, 0.225% tricalcium phosphate and 0.271% GMS.
