Determination of Sugars in Soft Drinks by High Performance Liquid Chromatography
Augustin, M. A. and Khor, K. L. (1986) Determination of Sugars in Soft Drinks by High Performance Liquid Chromatography. Pertanika, 9 (1). pp. 119-123.
The fructose, glucose and sucrose contents of selected soft' drinks available in Malaysian markets were determined by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The soft drinks tested had a soluble sugar content of between 8.5 to 15.3 g 100 ml- 1 • The average fructose, glucose and sucrose contents werefound to be in the ranges of 0 - 6. 7, 0 - 6.9 and 0 - 10.5 g 100 ml I respectively. The content of individual sugars were found to be more variable than the content of total sugar in different samples of a specific soft drink.
