Method GS1/2/3/9-1 (2011)


The Determination of the Polarisation of Raw Sugar by Polarimetry - Official


1 Scope

This method is applicable to all raw sugars [1] (General Subject 1), white sugars, specialty sugars and plan-tation white sugars requiring clarification (General  Subjects 2, 3 and 9) [2,3].

NOTE – No detail of methodology has been changed, from that given in GS1/2/3-1 (1994), by the introduction of plantation white sugars (General Subject 9).

If a choice is available to the user for the Determination of Polarisation of White Sugar then ICUMSA recommends that Method GS2/3-1 is used preferentially.
