This study was performed to establish method of simultaneous determination of fructose, glucose, and sucrose in honey and commercial vitamin drinks by GC and GC/MS. Optimum chromatographic separation of trimethylsilyl-oxime (TMSO) derivatives by GC was achieved on a DB-5 column. Calibration curves for fructose, glucose and sucrose TMSO derivatives by GC were linear in the range of 50-5000 μg/mL, and their r2 values were 0.9999, The limit of detection and limit of quantification of fructose, glucose, and sucrose were 0.68, 0.47, and 0.53 μg/mL, respectively, and 2.27, 1.58, and 1.77 μg/mL, respectively. Average recoveries of fructose, glucose, and sucrose were 100.5, 101.0, and 99.7%, respectively. When the method was applied to 12 honey samples, the average concentrations of fructose, glucose and sucrose were 42.58±1.97%, 27.74±1.16%, and 0.79±0.52%, respectively. The F/G ratio was 1.53±0.07. For fructose and glucose contents, results from the GC analysis were similar to those from the HPLC analysis, but the sucrose content was different for each analysis method. We suggest that the GC method is more suitable than other official analytical methods for simultaneous determination of fructose, glucose, and sucrose in honey. © The Korean Society of Food Science and Technology.
