What percentage of a Scandia Shake (sp ) is water

This answer was rated:

Trying to figure out what percentage of a Scandia Shake is water. i.e. how many glasses of Scandia Shake is equivalent to drinking a glass of water.


Thanks!

Are you referring to Scandishake Shake mixes.

Reply to Judy's Post:

Yes, although I'm asking about the ones that come in a bottle (as a drink). Not the powder.

For a FREE sample of SCANDISHAKE®, or to request additional information, please call (800) 4-SCANDI(NNN) NNN-NNNN.

Was my question not clear??? What percentage of a ScandiShake is water?

Apparently not much public information is available on the bottled Scandishake, but as far as water content is concerned a pretty accurate conclusion can be derived from the powdered version for which information can be more easily obtained.


For a 600 kcal (2kcal/ml) dosage of Scandishake, there is 1 bag powder and 240 ml of full fat milk. This mix yields 300 ml of liquid. Hence there is 240 ml milk in a 300 ml Scandishake mix, or 80% milk.


Now since regular milk contains about 80% water, the net amount of water in Scandishake mix would be 80% of 80% (i.e. 80% water in milk, and 80% milk in the Scandishake mix), or.


80% x 80% = 64%.


Therefore, in the powdered , which should not differ much from the bottled version for the same calorie yield, there would be 64% (about two thirds) water.


I hope you find this information helpful. if so please don't forget to hit the Accept button. Thanks.
