Total Solids Milk

Total solids are measured to ensure the quality of milk and milk products. They can easily be determined in milk and milk products such as condensed milk within seconds with a refractometer from Anton Paar.

Milk is a complex solution. The major ingredients are fats, proteins, milk sugar and water. Processed milk products such as sweetened condensed milk contain further ingredients, such as sucrose. The percentage of these total solids, also referred to as dry matter, varies depending on different factors like the animal, the animal’s nutrition and the season. Moreover, additional water, added vegetable fats, or a different amount of sucrose in sweetened condensed milk also influences the total solid level.
