Enter the total weight of waste (g) and the total weight of the meat product (g) into the Meat Shrinkage Calculator.

## Meat Shrinkage Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Meat Shrinkage Calculator.

MSC = WW / WM * 100

**MSC = WW / WM * 100**

Variables:

- MSC is the Meat Shrinkage (%)
- WW is the total weight of waste (g)
- WM is the total weight of the meat product (g)

To calculate the meat shrinkage, divide the total weight of waste by the weight of the product, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Meat Shrinkage?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Meat Shrinkage.

- First, determine the total weight of waste (g).
- Next, determine the total weight of the meat product (g).
- Next, gather the formula from above = MSC = WW / WM * 100.
- Finally, calculate the Meat Shrinkage.
- 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.

total weight of waste (g) = 100

total weight of the meat product (g) = 200

MSC = WW / WM * 100** **= ?
