    [Introduction] All human beings share the innate liking of sweetness since we experience from mother’s milk. Now, sugar and sugar rich foods are the most popular and worldwide consuming (McGee 645). High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) was introduced to the food and beverage industry as a substitution to sucrose because of its higher degree of sweetness and the decreasing use of sugar supply during World War II (White). Over a half century, scientists still dispute the safety of HFCS to health. Some studies

    (Daniel Luzon Morris,1946). Iodine can also react with the starch, which could potentially create a The colour of the precipitate that forms a purple precipitate (J.M Bailey,W.J Whelan, 1960). The colour happens because of the iodine reacting with the glucose inside the starch. (J.M Bailey,W.J Whelan, 1960). Biuret test is to detect protein is extremely small, it is supposedly around the value of 0.5mg/ml. (Crowe,2014). This means 0.5>x M of protein, the biuret solution would not change the if any solutions

  • Investigation of Action of Saliva and 3M Hydrochloric Acid in Two Carbohydrate Solution

    Because it has high kinetic energy, the solution can be catalyzed by the hydrochloric acid. The product that formed after hydrolysed is broken to monosaccharide which are glucose molecules. This is because glucose is a type of reducing sugar that can turns Benedict’s solution from blue to brick-red precipitate. Starch and glucose are consider as carbohydrate . Figure below shows

  • The Importance Of A Carbohydrate And Its Effect On Human Body

    1389 Words  | 6 Pages

    Introduction A carbohydrate is consumed and used in our bodies by breaking it down, and making glucose. Glucose is a sugar that our body uses to give us energy. Carbohydrates generally provide us with fiber, vitamins and minerals. There are two kinds of carbohydrates: simple and complex. We get our simple carbohydrates from foods such as milk, lactose products, fruit, and sugar. Complex carbohydrates, on the other hand, come from starches like cereal, bread, beans, potatoes, and starchy vegetables

    nitrate into the sample from a preloaded pipet. Be sure to wear goggles while doing this test. 13. To test for glucose bring a beaker of water to a boil. Label each of the test tubes of water samples to ensure you can decipher which tube has which substance in it. Then put seven or eight drops of the Benedict’s solution each test tube and place them in the boiling water. If there is glucose in the water, they will turn yellow or bright orange and opaque. 14. In a table record which tests results were

  • Essay on Mr. Euglena, Photosyntesis and Aerobic Respiration

    895 Words  | 4 Pages

    he waits patiently for the sun to gradually move higher in the sky. He believes that if he waits for enough sunlight, the process of photosynthesis will occur in his chloroplasts to make molecules of glucose. This is the beginning of the process of photosynthesis, which is the production of glucose in the chloroplasts

    labile N-substituted glycosylamine (Schiff base) that may undergo two sequential rearrangements, forming a stable Amadori product (Fayle & Gerrard, 2002). The reducing sugars namely, glucose, fructose, galactose, mannose, ribose and certain carbohydrate relatives are inherently reactive toward nucleophilic groups. Glucose is the least reactive among common sugars because it exists in least concentration in the open chain form (Paulsen and Pflughaupt, 1980). Amadori rearrangement was a key early step

  • The Methyl Red, Microbiology Laboratory Theory And Application

    1220 Words  | 5 Pages

    Red and Voges-Proskauer broth is a combination medium that contains peptone, glucose, and a phosphate buffer that produce proteins, fermentable carbohydrates, and a consistent pH level (Leboffe, Microbiology Laboratory Theory and Application). The Methyl Red test uses the Methyl Red and Voges-Proskauer broth to determine if an organism produces stable or unstable acid by performing a mixed-acid fermentation of glucose. If an organism produces a stable acid, it is positive for executing the mixed-acid

  • Factors That Affect A Vegetarian Diet That Account For Most Of The Energy Required By The Human Body

    1979 Words  | 8 Pages

    This report examines the various factors in a vegetarian diet that account for most of the energy required by the human body. The purpose of this report is to find out if a vegetarian diet can maintain normal physiological energy levels. In this day and age, many misconceptions arise regarding vegetarians. Some believe that vegetarians are lethargic and physically weak because they do not get enough nutrients from their diet. Having been a vegetarian my entire life, I can say that I haven’t had issues

    with the test material. It turns purple if it contains a protein. The darker the violet color, the more concentrated it is with protein. The spit lab was done in order to determine the effect of amylase on starch since starch is a long chain of glucose which serves as a main source of nutrients; the amylase breaks it into a simple monosaccharide. Amylase is an enzyme in the human saliva used to break starch into reducing sugars for energy. An enzyme is a protein, and enzymes speed chemical reactions
