Enter the total amount of meat (g) and the total amount of fat (g) into the Lean Meat Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Lean Meat Ratio.

## Lean Meat Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Lean Meat Ratio.

LMR = LM / M
• Where LMR is the Lean Meat Ratio
• M is the total amount of meat (g)
• LM is the total amount of lean meat (g)

To calculate the lean meat ratio, divide the lean meat weight by the total weight.

## How to Calculate Lean Meat Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Lean Meat Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total amount of meat (g).
• The total amount of meat (g) is given as: 40.
2. Next, determine the total amount of fat (g).
• The total amount of fat (g) is provided as: 10.
3. Finally, calculate the Lean Meat Ratio using the equation above:

LMR = (M-F) / M * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

LMR = (40-10) / 40 * 100 = 75 (%)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total amount of meat (g) = 60

total amount of fat (g) = 20

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

LMR = (M-F) / M * 100 = ?
