Measuring Method

Brix in Honey can be measured with MA871 Digital Refractometer described here.

The MA871 is an optical instrument that employs the measurement of refractive index to determine the % Brix of sugar in aqueous solutions.

 

Clean with lukewarm water after measuring highly viscous samples.

Brix of various honey samples
