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

Meat Shrinkage Calculator Formula

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

MSC = WW / WM * 100

Variables:

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

How to Calculate Meat Shrinkage Calculator?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Meat Shrinkage Calculator.


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

total weight of waste (g) = 100

total weight of the meat product (g) = 200

MSC = WW / WM * 100 = ?
