|Biochemical Physiological Actions||Sucrose is a simple carbohydrate used in density gradients and is hydrolyzed to glucose and fructose by dilute acids and by invertase, a yeast enzyme. Upon hydrolysis the optical rotation falls and is negative when the hydrolysis is complete. In a few cases, such as in riboflavin deficient diets, sucrose is preferred over corn starch due to its interactions in the gut to decrease intestinal synthesis of riboflavin, whereas corn starch has the opposite effect .|
