Total Soluble Solids (TSS)
As there is no approved method to determine the fruit content in fruit juice/drink in the laboratory, we tested the TSS percentage of the mango drink samples. TSS is the measure of sugar content of juice/ drink, both natural and added. TSS is considered as higher the better, subject to it being low in added sugar and restricted quantity of other thickening agents.
As per Food Safety and Standards (Food Products Standards and Food Additives) Regulations, 2011, the total soluble solids (mass/mass) in mango drink should not be less than 10 per cent.
