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.

Unintended pregnancy in folk songs
