  • Milk Ratios

    November 9th, 2012
    milk  [html]
    You're out of two percent but you do have some other milk derived liquids on hand with varying fat contents. What proportions can you mix to get what you like? Looking up the fat content of milk we find the average fat content by volume of different milk products is:
    skim 0.2%
    one percent 1%
    two percent 2%
    whole 3.25%
    half and half 14%
    light cream 25%
    heavy whipping cream 36%
    Now we can calculate proportions:
    one percent:
    56% skim and 44% two percent
    74% skim and 26% whole
    94% skim and 6% half and half
    97% skim and 3% light cream
    98% skim and 2% heavy whipping cream
    two percent:
    41% skim and 59% whole
    87% skim and 13% half and half
    93% skim and 7% light cream
    95% skim and 5% heavy whipping cream
    67% one percent and 33% whole
    92% one percent and 8% half and half
    96% one percent and 4% light cream
    97% one percent and 3% heavy whipping cream
    whole:
    78% skim and 22% half and half
    88% skim and 12% light cream
    91% skim and 9% heavy whipping cream
    83% one percent and 17% half and half
    91% one percent and 9% light cream
    94% one percent and 6% heavy whipping cream
    90% two percent and 10% half and half
    95% two percent and 5% light cream
    96% two percent and 4% heavy whipping cream

    Update 2018-10-04: I initially had this table with whole milk at 4% instead of 3.25%. While whole milk can vary in fat content depending on the cow, in the US 3.25% is by far the most common amount.

    Many large companies today are software monopolies that give their product away for free to get monopoly status, then do horrible things. Can we do anything about this?
