How does Benedict's solution work?


Benedict's Solution is a method to determine glucose levels in people suffering from diabetes. It has copper sulphate in it, which reacts with sugars forming copper oxide. Copper oxide is reddish brown in color, therefore the redder the solution appears, the more copper oxide is present, which indicates higher levels of sugar in the solution.
