Abstract: This method is suitable to determine the pH of raw sugar, white sugar, speciality sugar, plantation white sugar, molasses, juices and syrups.
The pH of the sample solution is measured potentiometrically using a pH meter after calibration with known buffer solutions.
Measurement is carried out on sugar solutions at a mass fraction of dissolved solids of approximately 50 g/100 g and at 20 °C.
