Help plaese.

I make up our ice cream mixes. I know the fat of the cream we use but not its MSNF value. I have been using 9% for the last few years. Is there any fast way of working MSN knowing fat level in cream.

Milk Solids-non-fat，including lactose,caseins,whey proteins and minerals.

Cream can be regarded as a mixture of fat in an aqueous phase called serum that contains lactose, proteins and salts. The serum solids can be called by several different names e.g. MILK SOLIDS NOT FAT (MSNF). The skim milk or milk serum can be assumed to contain about 9% MSNF.

Given cream containing 40 % fat, the MSNF component supplied by say 20 kg of cream can be calculated as follows.

• Since 100 kg of cream at 40 % fat is equivalent to 40 kg of cream and 60 kg of MSNF, the MSNF in the 60 kg is 60*0.09 = 5.4 kg

• MSNF supplied by 20 kg of cream containing 40% fat
=20 *0.054
= 1.08 kg

Similarly the quantity of MSNF supplied by 20 kg of cream containing 25% fat can be calculated as follows:

• The MSNF is present in the 75 kg of milk serum. The MSNF component represents 0.09* 75 = 6.75 kg.
MSNF supplied by 20 kg of cream containing 25% fat
=20 *0.0675
= 1.35 kg

This approach yields approximate values and calculation of the actual MSNF concentration is always advisable.

Thank you for this! Your elp is apprecaited.

Sugar is expesve and we are thinking of using Corn Syrup. There seems to be some problems with this? Cannot get straight answer.

Is there a downside to using corn syrup?

Anyone help?

There are no technological problems in using corn syrup preparations in ice cream. There are some groups in the US that believe corn syrup preparations may contribute towards the obesity epidemic in the US. While some may argue that this is a somewhat simplistic argument in the wider obesity debate it is an area that you should be aware of for marketing reasons at least. I suggest that you do a search on Goggle for obesity + fructose + mechanism to see the results of some of the latest research in this area.

For a range of reasons I would prefer to close down further postings on this topic.

I have a question. I calculated MSNF in heavy cream, half and half, and whole milk using this method:
1. Find the item on http://nutritiondata.self.com/.  Here are the direct links for heavy cream, half and half, and whole milk.
2. Get the nutritional data for 1 cup of fluid. For heavy cream (listed as "Cream, fluid, heavy whipping"), make sure you change the "serving size" drop-down.
3. Take the total weight and subtract the fat weight and water weight to get the MSNF weight. For heavy cream, this would be 238g - 88g - 137g = 13g.
4. To find the percentage, just divide the MSNF weight and divide by total weight. For heavy cream: 13g/238g = 5.46%.

Is this valid? Am I missing something by doing it this way?

Apologies for delay in approving this post. It was hidden in pages of SPAM.

I have not checked your calculation but would urge a little caution. The terms heavy cream do not specify the precise fat content. These terms normally cover a range of fat concentrations.
