SAP Value Chart

Keep in mind, while looking at another SAP Value Chart on the
web
or in books, that there will be slight differences in the numbers.
As the ‘science’ of soap making expands the numbers will be
adjusted for the mildest outcome possible. For example:
Almond,
Sweet was originally listed as 0.140 in older recipes.
Science
has now helped us adjust the numbers for the best bar of natural soap
possible with a SAP value of .137.
