Carbohydrate contents were quantified for starch and reducing sugars (glucose + fructose); non-reducing sugar
(sucrose); and total sugars, expressed as a percentage, according to Somogy method, adapted by Nelson (1944).
Mannitol is chemically inert, has low moisture content and is a non-reducing sugar
, making it suitable for formulation as it will not react with the API.
Samples were examined for physicochemical properties i.e., total soluble solids (TSS), pH, acidity, reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar
and ascorbic acid by using the standard method of AOAC (2012).
Guava fruit contains 82.50 per cent water, 2.45 percent reducing sugar, 2.23 percent non-reducing sugar
, 9.73 percent total soluble solids, 0.48 percent ash and 260 mg vitamin-C per 100 gm of fruit pulp as well as good amount of iron, calcium and phosphorus.
Other treatments indicated significant differences and the lowest percent of non-reducing sugar
were observed in control.
Another striking observation was that reducing sugars did not offer huge imbalances as was observable in the case of non-reducing sugar
. Here the observations of Jeng et al.
The energy drinks evaluated in this study have a high erosive potential, as they present low pH and a high non-reducing sugar
It is a non-reducing sugar
, resistant to hydrolysis, and is not involved in the Maillard browning reaction.
That structure is novel: The lack of reducing ends makes it a non-reducing sugar
. This means it can be used to stabilize amino acids without triggering a Maillard reaction, even in acidic foods.
The non-reducing sugar
content (NRS), total soluble sugar (TSS) and total soluble proteins (TSP) were higher in cv.
The Caipira variety showed the highest non-reducing sugar
content (not differing statistically from the Ambrosia variety).
contents in the grains of all samples were slightly different from each other.
