Sugar Purity | Sugar Reflectance | Brix


Purity analysis begins in the laboratory and is carried out through all stages of production and can be determined by a sample’s polarity or refractive index.


A reflectance colorimeter is used for the color classification of sugar. The International Commission for Uniform Methods of Sugar Analysis (ICUMSA) has defined a color type scale for color grading of white sugars with a range of 0 to 6 Color Type Units (CTU) with 0 being maximum white.


BRIX is a unit of measurement of refractive index with degree Brix (°Bx) being a scientific unit used to indicate the concentration of sucrose in pure water. It correlates with the mass percentage of sucrose in water. One degree Brix equals 1 gram of sucrose dissolved in 100 grams of water. This type of measurement is universally used to monitor the sucrose concentration of wine, sugar, beverages, syrups, honey, and more.
