wine.sugar: Sugar adulteration in wine production

Description Usage Format Source References Examples

Description

Chemical composition of N=344 commercial samples of concentrated grape must used in wine production. The four variables recorded are considered for discovering adulteration with added sugar from non-grape plants. In unadulterated wines, myoinositol and D/H(I) should follow normal distributions.
