Abstract: This method measures the haze formed by dextran-like polysaccharides when alcohol is added to a juice or a diluted thick juice.
Dextran in beet raw juice causes severe processing problems, especially in filtration. This method may be used to follow the dextran development during the beet processing or in thick juices storage.
This Method is applicable to beet raw juices and thick juices.
Repeatability and reproducibility values have not yet been formally established.
