UV-method for the determination of D-Mannose, D-Fructose
and D-Glucose in foodstuffs, yeast cell preparations and
other materials

(1) D-Mannose / D-fructose / D-glucose + ATP →
                                                           M-6-P / F-6-P / G-6-P + ADP

     (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase)
(2) G-6-P + NADP+ → gluconate-6-phosphate + NADPH + H+
