AACC Method 80-51.01
Solids in Syrups -- Refractometer Method

VIEW METHOD

Objective
This method determines the amount of solids in syrups and liquid samples containing no undissolved solids. The method is not accurate when applied to low-grade sugar products, molasses, and other materials containing large quantities of nonsugar solids, but is extensively used for approximate results.
