(for glucose and other sugars in urine) boil a specimen to destroy bacteria, then add baker's yeast and incubate; perform Benedict test for reducing sugars on this specimen and an unfermented specimen. Glucose, fructose, and maltose are fermented and give a reaction in the unfermented specimen but not in the fermented specimen.
