What is the scientific method of measuring the sweetness intensity of High Intense Sweeteners (HIS) ?


There are a variety of methods based on different principles that have been applied to the analysis of sweeteners in different food matrices. Currently, the most popular technique in this field is high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) (Gloria, 2000; Zygler et al., 2009, 2011 ).
