ICUMSA Method GS3-1 (2002)

The Determination of the Polarisation of the Sugar Component of Powdered Sugars Containing Anti-Caking Agents - Official

ICUMSA Method GS3-1 (2002)
Method Technique:

This method is suitable to determine the polarimetric sucrose content of the sugar component of powdered sugars. The procedure is carried out in a number of steps by first determining the amount of insoluble anti-caking agent present, then determining the moisture content of the sample. The results of these two steps allow a sample to be prepared containing 26 g of sugar for polarimetry.
