ICUMSA Method GS4/8/1/2/3-18 (2017)

The Determination of Total α-Galactosides and Raffinose by an Enzymatic Method in Beet Molasses - Official – in Juices and Syrups from Beet Processing and Beet Sugar - Accepted

ICUMSA Method GS4/8/1/2/3-18 (2017)
Material: , ,
Method Technique:

The method is applicable to the determination of total α-galactosides and the estimation of raffinose in beet molasses, in juices and syrups from beet processing and beet sugar. The raffinose present is hydrolysed by an enzyme to D-galactose which is then oxidised with nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide (NAD): the NAD being reduced to NADH. The quantity of NADH formed is measured spectrophotometrically. The absolute difference for results obtained under repeatability conditions should not be greater than 3 g/100 g.
