# What causes the milk percentage to rise?

In cookie clicker, what causes the milk percentage to rise?

I had a hundred percent, but now I have 106% and I have no idea where it came from. Now I also got the milk turned into raspberry juice and the value is up to 228%

### One Solution collect form web for “What causes the milk percentage to rise?”

## The answer to your question

The base amount of milk is 0%. The current formula for calculating milk is `milk = achievements / 25`

. That means that for every achievement, you get 4% milk.

~~Are you sure 58 is the number shown in the stats page? I currently have 40 achievements, giving me 160% milk (as expected).~~

I have just discovered that **not all achievements count**. The August 27th update states:

due to popular demand, retired 5 achievements (the “reset your game” and “cheat” ones); they can still be unlocked, but do not count toward your total anymore.

If you hover over one of these achievements, it’ll say [Shadow] in the tooltip. An example of this is:

Uncanny clicker (“Beat the clicking speed world record.”):

I got this through using MouseKeys to sort of gain an advantage ðŸ˜›

This means that even though it’s displayed in the stats page, it *doesn’t actually count* when calculating milk %. Thus, even though I have 42 achievements, since one of them is a [Shadow] achievement, the game calculates my milk as 41 / 25 = 164%.

### More milk facts!

The text next to milk is just flavour text. When milk is less than 100%, it’s simply *plain milk*. When it’s at least 100% but less than 200%, it’s *chocolate milk*. Otherwise, if it’s at least 200%, it’s *raspberry juice*.

Milk will only affect Cookies Per Second (CpS) if you have at least one kitten upgrade. The first one, *Kitten helpers*, is unlocked at 50% milk and adds a `0.05 * milk`

multiplier. (For instance, at 50% milk, your CpS will be multiplied by 1.025.)

The other upgrades are:

At 100% milk,

Kitten workers. This adds an additional multiplier of`0.1 * milk`

.

At 200% milk,Kitten engineers. This adds an additional multiplier of`0.2 * milk`

.Thus, at 200% milk with all Kitten upgrades, your CpS is multiplied by 1.1, then 1.2, then 1.4, for a total multiplier of 1.848.

**Note**: sometimes, for whatever reason, getting a new achievement while owning at least one Kitten upgrade will not change your CpS. To force the game to recalculate your CpS, go to your address bar and type in `javascript:Game.CalculateGains()`

or `javascript:Game.recalculateGains=1`

.

^{Interestingly, a comment in the code says it should be 1% per achievement and that raspberry juice should be strawberry juice…}
