Use of the refractometer to determine total solids in sweetened condensed milk

Authors: A. J. Lawrence

Abstract:

Data from 56 samples of sweetened condensed milk (9 per cent fat, 31 per cent milk solids) made over a period of one year showed the following average relationship between total solids and refractive index measured at 25°C:

T.S - 376 x R.I - 480.1.

As a means of determining the total solids content refractive index measurement was not more reliable than determination of specific gravity by pycnometer.
