Q. Also, I saw powdered buttermilk in the store. If water is added, will it tenderize bread and waffles the same as fresh buttermilk?

A. Powdered buttermilk is to regular buttermilk as powdered milk is to regular milk — that is, it performs in all the expected ways when it is rehydrated, it just doesn’t taste the same. But since powdered buttermilk is almost exclusively used for baking, the taste difference may not be particularly noticeable.
