- n. A mixture of equal parts of glucose and fructose resulting from the hydrolysis of sucrose. It is found naturally in fruits and honey and produced artificially for use in the food industry.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. An amorphous saccharine substance, the chief constituent of honey, and produced by the action of ferments or dilute acids on cane-sugar. It is regarded as a mixture of equal parts of dextrose and levulose. A solution of cane-sugar turns the polarized ray of light to the right, while invert-sugar turns it to the left. From this inversion of the action on polarized light the process is called
inversion, and the product invert-sugar.
- n. An equal mixture of glucose and fructose formed by the enzymatic hydrolysis of sucrose; it is found in honey and some fruits, and also produced industrially.
