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 = ?
