In-line Brix measurement during sugar syrup cooking

Sugar confections are products rich in sugar and carbohydrates. Sugar  confections  include  candies,  chocolate  fillings,  chewing  gum,  marshmallows, other desserts (e.g. dulce de leche) and other sweet items which are made mainly from sugar. 

Brix measurement in syrup cooking control  

Sugar confections and chocolate fillings are produced by mixing and diluting the ingredients, and then concentrating the sugar content to the desired level by cooking and evaporating water. The final Brix of the solution determines the flavor, consistency and overall quality of the final product.
