how much does a gallon of milk weigh?
As a result, there are several factors that contribute to the weight of a gallon of milk.
The weight of one gallon of milk is more than eight pounds. A number of factors can influence weight, such as milk's fat content, water content, and proteins found in milk.
Milk is about 87% water by volume. The fat in some types of milk will also change the weight considerably because it increases the amount of solids present (milk is mostly water). Skim or fat-free milk tends to weigh less than whole or 2% milk because there isn't as much added solid material. With these differences in mind, one gallon should weigh anywhere from 8-27 pounds, depending on how you measure it.
