  • Testing for Glucose, Sucrose, Fructose

    I have someone who is cooking for me using Paleo guidelines. Many of her sauces have a very sweet taste that make me believe some kind of liquid-form sugar is present in high quantities. Is there any over the counter test I can purchase that I could measure the actual quantity per volume of various types of sugars?

    Maybe Glucose test strips will work? I googled your question...

    How Sweet It Is! Measuring Glucose in Your Food

    You need an adult helper, apparently.

      Glucose test strips are inadequate because they fail to find other kinds of sugar.

      I will probably settle with Benedict's solution, but would like to hear about other alternatives.

      I'd settle for a human being who is helpful.

        Why not just ask?

          Ask the person cooking for you how much sugar they use.....or tell her to not use sugar. I opt for the second. By the time you can convince a girl to give you head even when your not shaving your pubes....reducing the amount of sugar in your day to day menu should be collateral damage.

              Of course I asked her to not use sugar. She insists she did not use sugar. I simply would like to have a food test around to test random foods.

                she says "no", but you think she is lying? are you snooping through her email and phone too?

                after eating this way for awhile, you're much more sensitive to the natural sweetness of foods.
                As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                      If you are willing to question someone's integrity over sugar content, maybe you should do your own cooking.

                        You have to understand a lot about nutrition to understand what foods metabolize to glucose rapidly. I think she doesn't understand enough to trust her answer.

                          "She" is a professional cook. Not related to me. Not my girlfriend.

                            The adult helper is listed under Materials and Equipment on the link provided. That's what jojohaligo was referring to.

                              She's a professional cook, she says she's not using sugar, yet you think her sauces taste too sweet, so rather than trust her or ask her to cook less sweet-tasting sauces or fire her because you don't like her cooking you want to run chemical tests on the food? Why don't you just put a hidden camera in the kitchen?

                              You can see that this is insane, right?
