UV-method for the determination of Maltose, Sucrose and D-Glucose in foodstuffs, beverages and other materials

(1) Maltose + H2O → 2D-glucose

(2) Sucrose + H2O → D-glucose + D-fructose

(3) D-Glucose + ATP → G-6-P + ADP

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