Concentration Measurement of Syrup & Final Beverages without Sugar (Diet Non-alcoholic Beverages)

Non-alcoholic beverages contain sucrose or artificial sweeteners – sometimes also a mixture of them. Determining the concentration of soft drinks and ready-to-drinks (RTDs) which contain sugar is very easy with density measurements. In comparison, concentration measurements of diet drinks made with mainly artificial sweeteners are more challenging. Anton Paar DMA density meters make both an easy task.

Non-alcoholic beverages containing sweeteners are consumed in numerous households worldwide. Diet beverages constitute a growing segment in the non-alcoholic beverage industry, which makes their production even more worthwile to monitor.

Typical diet soft drinks and ready-to-drink beverages contain sweeteners, additionally to other ingredients like acids or flavors. If the main ingredient is sugar, the sugar concentration can be easily measured via density using Anton Paar’s oscillating U-tube technology. All ingredients, but mainly the sugar, have an effect on the density of the soft drinks and RTDs, which can be expressed in sugar concentration (°Brix). Nowadays, a lot of low-calorie alternatives are on the market which contains artificial sweeteners instead of sucrose or high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
