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

                               (glucose oxidase)
(1) D-Glucose + H2O + O2 → D-gluconate + H2O2

(2) 2H2O2 + p-hydroxybenzoic acid + 4-aminoantipyrine →
                                                                   quinoneimine + 4H2O

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

Kit size:                            250 assays
Method:                             Spectrophotometric at 510 nm
