When you complete this objective you will be able to calculate the yield and cost of an Edible Product.
|Formula||Yield% = (EP / AP) x 100%|
A striploin weighs 5.2 kg AP and after trimming weights 4.6 kg (EP). Calculate the Yield percentage.
The striploin in example #1 costs $11.95 / kg to purchase. What is the cost per kilogram of the trimmed striploin?
There are 2 methods to find this answer:
a) Using the figures for the striploin we have
b) We don't want to do a test every time the price changes. Since we know the yield percentage is 88.5%, we can use this.
We want to serve 85 people steak sandwiches weighing 170 grams each. How much striploin do we need?
a) Calculate the total amount of trimmed striploin (EP weight) required:
b) the EP weight will be 88.5% of the AP weight (using our yield percentage)
