Enter the total weight of the sausage (g) and the total weight of fat in the sausage (g) into the Sausage Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Sausage Ratio. 

Sausage Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Sausage Ratio. 

SAR = F / W * 100

  • Where SAR is the Sausage Ratio (%)
  • W is the total weight of the sausage (g) 
  • F is the total weight of fat in the sausage (g) 

How to Calculate Sausage Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Sausage Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total weight of the sausage (g). 
    • The total weight of the sausage (g) is given as: 400.
  2. Next, determine the total weight of fat in the sausage (g). 
    • The total weight of fat in the sausage (g) is provided as: 100.
  3. Finally, calculate the Sausage Ratio using the equation above: 

SAR = F / W * 100

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

SAR = 100 / 400 * 100 = 25.00 (%)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total weight of the sausage (g) = 60

total weight of fat in the sausage (g) = 200

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

SAR = F / W * 100 = ?
