Molasses Exhaustibility Studies Based on Sugars Analysis by Gas-liquid Chromatography

  title={Molasses Exhaustibility Studies Based on Sugars Analysis by Gas-liquid Chromatography},
  author={Ian A. Smith},
Exhaustibility tests were carried out by concentrating molasses to 4 000 poise (determined a t 40°C), adding refined sugar, crystallising at 40°C for 48 hours and carrying out on the separated molasses a series of analyses which included sugars by gas-liquid chromatography (GLC) as well as Lane and Eynon methods. Regression analysis of the results showed that purity of the exhausted molasses was strongly dependent on the ratios of non-sucrose to water and of reducing sugars to ash. Some small… CONTINUE READING
