Abstract
This paper deals with the study of sugar in fruits jam of different brands available in the market of Bangladesh. Sugar is a biochemical parameter. The term sugar related to total sugar, reducing sugar and non reducing sugar. Amounts of reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar and total sugar of different fruit's jams available in Bangladesh were determined. The reducing sugar content of different jams ranges from 28.00 % to 60.30 %. The highest amount of reducing sugar (60.30%) was found in Nur mixed Jam and the lowest (28.00%) in Agrokomerc Pineapple Jam. The reducing sugar content of different jams ranges from 28.00 % to 60.30 %. The highest amount of reducing sugar (60.30%) was found in Nur mixed Jam and the lowest (28.00%) in Agrokomerc Pineapple Jam. The total sugar content of different jams ranges from 38.86% to 62.53%. The highest amount of total sugar (62.53%) was found in Nur Apple Jam and the lowest amount of total sugar (38.86%) was found in Agrokomerc Pineapple Jam. Non reducing sugar content of Jams was found in range of 05.33 % to 25.17 %. The highest amount of non reducing sugar (25.17 %) was found in Best Food Orange Marmalade Jam and the lowest (05.33 %) in Nur Apple Jam. The percentage of sugar was determined by using biochemical methods.
