Enter the amount of a single ingredient and its percentage in the recipe to determine the total batch size. This calculator helps in scaling recipes or formulations.

## Batch Size Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the batch size.

BS = (IA / IP) * 100

Variables:

• BS is the batch size (grams)
• IA is the amount of the ingredient used in the recipe (grams)
• IP is the percentage of the ingredient in the recipe (%)

To calculate the batch size, divide the amount of the ingredient by its percentage in the recipe and then multiply by 100.

## What is Batch Size?

Batch size refers to the total amount of product produced in a single manufacturing run. It is an important concept in production and cooking, where precise measurements are necessary to maintain consistency and quality. Knowing the batch size is crucial when scaling recipes up or down to meet production needs or to adjust for the number of servings required.

## How to Calculate Batch Size?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Batch Size.

1. First, determine the amount of the ingredient used in the recipe (IA) in grams.
2. Next, determine the percentage of the ingredient in the recipe (IP) as a percentage.
3. Use the formula from above = BS = (IA / IP) * 100.
4. Finally, calculate the Batch Size (BS) in grams.
5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

amount of the ingredient used in the recipe (IA) = 250 grams

percentage of the ingredient in the recipe (IP) = 50%
