The Glucose test paper detects 0.1 – 2.0% glucose. The strip can be used to measure glucose levels in osmosis/diffusion experiments and food science studies. These strips are specific to glucose. You will not get a reaction with soft drinks or regular sugar since these are mainly fructose or sucrose. However, one simple demonstration anyone can do is to chew a saltine (salty cracker) and spit out a bit after a few seconds & test it. Then try it again but chew longer so that the salty taste disappears and begins to taste slightly sweet. The strips are sensitive enough to detect the glucose from the breakdown of starch. These strips are not intended for medical diagnosis. Instructions: Remove one test paper from the bag using tweezers. Do not touch the test paper with your bare hand. The strip is 4 inches in length, and may be cut into smaller lengths if needed. Dip the test strip into the solution being tested for 1-2 seconds. Remove the strip from the solution. After 60 seconds, compare the test strip to the color chart. Note: In solutions containing oxidizers, a false positive may be observed.
