    Testing for Glucose, Sucrose, Fructose

    Shop Now
    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...

    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.

    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.
