You will need
• Glass height of 12-15 cm
• ruler with millimeter divisions
• milk.
Instruction
1
Of course, the exact level of fat content of milk can be determined only by using special devices, available to cow farms and dairy factories.
2
But check the approximate fat content of milk can be every person from the comfort of your own home and using only the instruments available in any modern kitchen.
3
To determine the fat content of milk in home conditions you will need a glass with a height of 12-15 cm, a ruler with divisions in millimeters and, of course, the check product, i.e. milk.
4
On a prepared drink made with a felt pen to draw a dash at 10 cm from the bottom. Then a glass to pour milk up to that mark.
5
A glass of milk should be left on the table at room temperature for 8 hours.
6
During this time, the surface of the poured into a glass of milk must be cream. Height, formed of these layers must be measured with a ruler with millimeter divisions.
7
Now you should determine the percentage of fat milk. To do this is not difficult. The height of the layer of milk, i.e. 100mm, should be considered as 100%.
8
The number of millimeters of the layer formed on the surface of the milk and cream is percentage of fat.
9
Of course, to measure tenths of a millimeter cream "by eye" is impossible. But to determine the approximate fat content by using this simple method is quite easy.
