Abstract: This method is used to determine the reducing sugars content in beet molasses.
It is suitable for beet molasses where the reducing sugars content normally lies below 5 g/100 g.
The procedure relies upon the capability of the reducing sugars present to reduce Fehling's solution under standard conditions.
