    how quickly the reaction is running. (Campbell and Reece 173-178) Glucose is one of the most abundant carbohydrates on earth and therefore is generally the sugar involved in fermentation. (Ophardt) It is a monosaccharide with a “six membered ring structure” ("Simple Sugars: Fructose, glucose and sucrose") Fructose and sucrose are two other common simple sugars found in many of the foods we eat. Fructose is very similar to glucose only it is made up of a five membered ring. And sucrose is a disaccharide;

    known that yeast can ferment sugars such as glucose, sucralose, fructose, saccharin, and maltose but not ferment Truvia, starch, and lactose as efficiently. Simple sugars are known as monosaccharides whereas complex sugars are polysaccharides because they are made up of monosaccharides through dehydration reactions. A dehydration reaction occurs when a water molecule is removed from the reacting molecule and the two molecules become covalently bonded. Glucose and fructose are monosaccharides whereas

    transport proteins glucose transporter (GLUT-4), where increased contractions and movement results in increased recruitment (CITE). In order for muscles, especially, to be able to metabolize ATP via muscle glycogen during exercise it is essential muscle glycogen stores are filled back up post exercise in order to sustain high performance and duration for the next performance. Without proper replenishment, specifically of muscle glycogen, post exercise, the output of hepatic glucose decreases at every

    to see how different levels of yeast, distilled water, and sugar interact to affect the level of carbon dioxide evolved in fermentation. In this experiment we had two sections. The first section tested four test tubes with varying levels of yeast, glucose and distilled water for evolved carbon dioxide levels. The tubes were timed for 20 minutes. The amounts of solution in the test tubes are noted in the methods section of this lab report. The second section of the lab used three test tubes and flowed

    1.IKI test, Before treatment: make 1% starch and follow the IKI test for starch, water, and glucose by testing three drops of each with one drop IKI’s regent. 2.Benedict’s test before treatment: Add 10 drop of Benedict's regent to three test tubes, each including either glucose, water, or starch. The test tubes are then placed in boiling water and resulting colors are recorded.

    Also regulates formation of glycogen. It is a substance that results from the metabolism of glucose in the human liver. It can boost ATP, lessen sleepiness and increase alertness and reaction time [10]. Inositol What it is: A sugar that is a member of the Vitamin B complex What it does: Controls cholesterol levels and has potential antioxidant

    macromolecules in 12 pre-chosen chemicals. To carry out the lab, three different tests were performed: The Iodine test, Benedict’s test and Biuret test. The twelve chemicals that were being tested on throughout the experiment included: 1% glucose solution, 0.3% glucose-1-phosphate, 1% maltose sugar, honey solution, 1% sucrose solution, 1% lactose solution, 1% glycogen solution, 1% starch solution, protein, beer, distilled water and an unknown substance “unknown 193”.

    and added sugar each day (Cowan, 2014). How is sugar digested? Sugar is a Carbohydrate and provides a source of energy in the body. It is the only source of energy for red blood cells and the brain. It is digested quickly and broken down to form glucose and fructose, which is used for energy (My Food Diary, 2014). Fructose,

  • The Importance Of Artificial Sugar

    Glucose is a necessary nutrient to our bodies. Glucose help our brain, muscles, and tissues, without it the body cannot function. Artificial sugar is chemically processed and used in placed of sugar. Artificial sugar is usually used less in food, candies and drinks, because it tends to be 200-600 times sweeter than natural sugar. The artificial sweeteners have become a controversy, continuously being linked to cancer, diabetes and recently the function of the nervous system (brain). The use of sugar

    and plants convert the polysaccharides into smaller subunits in order to obtain the energy from them. Starch is a polysaccharide which is formed by linking alpha-glucose molecules through 1-4 glycosidic bonds. Starch is made up of two polymers of glucose, amylose (straight chain of glucose molecules) and amylopectin (branched chain of glucose molecules). However when
