I took two 10 minute readings from a sealed foil package of 12oz Organic NonFat Dry Milk, non-instant Grade A. The date code on the package was 10351BEXP1111, I believe that corresponds to a packaging date of February 4, 2011.
The procedure was as follows
10 minute timed count from the back of the package; 426 total counts.
10 minute timed background count from the table under the package; 329 total counts.
10 minute timed count from the front of the package; 457 total counts.
10 minute timed background count from the table under the package; 351 total counts.
The result is that the PRE-FUKUSHIMA milk radioactivity read 30% above background
The corresponding average reading from the milk container was 0.0126 mR/hr
The corresponding average background reading was 0.0097 mR/hr
I will update with future readings as I start to use more pre-Fukushima dried milk.
