Brix is a measurement system for sugar content of fruits, wine and related products. This measurement is used by inspectors, food industries, vineyards, and growers. For example, a reading of 20 to 25 deg. Brix is generally the optimum degree of grape ripeness at harvest for the majority of table wines. Knowing the proper brix (sugar) concentration is a step in ensuring good quality as well as controlling the correct percentage concentration for cost control.
