The fructose, glucose and sucrose contents of selected soft1 drinks available in Malaysian markets were determined by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The soft drinks tested had a soluble sugar content of between 8.5 to 15.3 g 100 ml '. The average fructose, glucose and sucrose contents were found to be in the ranges of 0- 6.7, 0-6.9 and 0 - 10.5 g 100 ml 'respectively.
