Abstract - Linear programming is a classical mathematical technique of optimization, easy to operate on a computer, which may be of a great utility in food formulation, specially for blends of some dairy products. The mixture must be defined by certain constraints, which may be analytical, technological, organoleptic or legislative, provided that all are linear. The computer gives the less costly formula fitting with those constraints. An exemple is given in ice cream blending.
