Merck CoverMobile and Advanced Analysing Tools for In-Process testing, R&D, and Quality Control of Sugar

Depending on where sugar is tested, the preferred testing features will vary greatly. If sugar is tested for incoming ingredient control, for process control (cleanness of your production line) and process troubleshooting, simple, fast, portable, space-saving methods are preferred; however, if sugar is tested in a QC or RD lab, or testing lab, and for more profile testing, more comprehensive, sensitive, specific, and standard methods might be needed. In this webinar you will learn the different sugar testing methods and learn if the method you are currently using is the most accurate and efficient, along with a deeper look into specific sugar testing requirements for processed foods like potato chips, salad dressing and confectionary items like chocolate.
