Calculator for determining the MSNF content of unwashed butter.

  % fat  
  % MSNF 1.8  
Given butter containing 80 % fat, the MSNF component can be calculated as follows: 100 kg of butter of 80 % fat is equivalent to 80 kg of butter and 20 kg of MSNF. The MSNF in the 20 kg of skim is 20*0.09 = 1.8 kg or 1.8 % in the butter. This approach yields approximate values. This free calculator is provided for educational purposes and is not warranted in any way. Determination of the actual MSNF concentration is always advisable.
