This reagent is a qualitative indicator for the presence of glucose.
Our 100 ml bottle of Benedict's solution is qualitative. This means it indicates the magnitude of sugar concentration, not the exact sugar concentration (quantitative).
When you perform the test with Benedict's solution, the color of precipitate you see indicates the general amount of sugar present. If no precipitate forms, there is no sugar present. If a green precipitate forms, that indicates just a trace of sugar. Yellow, orange, and red precipitates indicate sugar in increasing quantities.
Here's a project that uses Benedict's solution: Food Chemistry
