Reference information:
http://www.ag-usa.net/brix_test_meaning.htm """ Brix – A unit of measure used in the refractometer. When the Brix reading is divided by 2 it will be equal to the percent of crude sucrose in the plant tissue.

Refractometer – A device used to measure the refractive index of plant juices in order to determine the mineral/sugar ratio of the plant cell protoplasm.

Refractive Index of Crop juices are calibrated in percent sucrose or degree Brix.

During the growing season it is possible to check a plant for percent sucrose. A refractometer is easy to use. You will need something like a garlic squeezer for juicing the plant sample. To make a reading, place 2 to 3 drops of the liquid sample on the prism surface, close the cover and point toward any light source. Focus the eyepiece by turning the ring to the right or left. Locate the point on the graduated scale where the light and dark field meet. Read the percent sucrose (solid content on the scale). ""

Brix - Unidade de medida usada no refratômetro. Quando a leitura do Brix é dividida por 2, será igual à porcentagem de sacarose bruta no tecido da planta.

Da Wikipedia,.....
rix (símbolo °Bx) é uma escala numérica de índice de refração (o quanto a luz desvia em relação ao desvio provocado por água destilada) de uma solução, comumente utilizada para determinar, de forma indireta, a quantidade de compostos solúveis numa solução de sacarose, utilizada geralmente para suco de fruta. A escala Brix é utilizada na indústria de alimentos para medir a quantidade aproximada de açúcares em sucos de fruta, vinhos e na indústria de açúcar, bem como outras soluções. A escala de brix, criada por Adolf Ferdinand Wenceslaus Brix, foi derivada originalmente da escala de Balling, recalculando a temperatura de referência de 15,5 °C.
