A simple, rapid threshold test for the approximate analysis of invert sugar in maple sirup is described. The method is based on the selection of sample dilutions such that, for any given percentage of invert, one dilution will give a positive color test while the adjacent higher dilution will give a negative test reaction. The test requires only a simple kit, obtainable from all drug stores, and such equipment as can be found in the home or processing plant.
