Enter the total weight of milk (g) and the total percentage solids (%) into the Milk Solids Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Milk Solids. 

Milk Solids Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Milk Solids.

MS = WM * S/100


  • MS is the Milk Solids (g)
  • WM is the total weight of milk (g) 
  • S is the total percentage solids (%) 

To calculate milk solids, multiply the weight of the milk by the percentage solids.

How to Calculate Milk Solids?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Milk Solids.

  1. First, determine the total weight of milk (g). 
  2. Next, determine the total percentage solids (%). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = MS = WM * S/100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Milk Solids.
  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 milk (g) = 50

total percentage solids (%) = 75

MS = WM * S/100 = ?
