Method Description:

This method directly determines the amounts of: fructose, glucose, sucrose, maltose, and lactose. The sugars are extracted and cleaned-up, and after the appropriate dilution are quantitated using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC).

Information Required by Submitter:

Please supply an estimate of the sugar and salt levels, if available.
