A mathematical model for determining the sucrose concentration in honey, based on the optical rotation of the plane of polarization in solutions, is described. The dependencies of the dispersion of the specific rotation in the main polysaccharides (sucrose, glucose and fructose) included in honey are obtained. A working hypothesis is put forward and experimentally tested to determine the angle of rotation of the plane of polarization of light passed through a cuvette with honey as an algebraic sum of the rotation angles for light that passed through individual components of honey. A prototype of a device for express analysis of honey has been developed and manufactured to determine the excess of sucrose concentration over its value in natural honey.
