    Title: Starch Aims 1. To identify starch in food. 2. To study the microscopic appearances of raw and heated starch. 3. To compare the viscosity of various gelatinized starch solutions. Introduction Starch is one of the most abundant substances on the earth. It can be found in seeds, grains, and roots of many crops where it is synthesized in granular form. Starch granules are packages of starch molecules. The importance of starch is well-known, as is its central role in human diet.

    bonds. In this lab we will be examining starch. Starch is most commonly used for short term energy storage in humans and in plants. Starch that is present in humans and is stored in the form of glycogen as it is more compact. However, both humans 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,

    Starch, dextran, and cellulose are all made up of glucose but differ in the arrangement the glucose molecules. Starch is made of large polysaccharide chains that are arranged in a semi-crystalline form. The glucose in dextran is composed in a linear pattern, the chains are very straight. Lastly in cellulose, glucose is packed tightly together in a parallel formation. Glycogen is a branched polymer consisting of multiple side chains. The glucose is linked together using a-(1-4) glyosidic bonds.

    to each other? What are their benefits and drawbacks? Below, we compare cornstarch and arrowroot. How do arrowroot and corn starch differ? If you were to go on appearance alone, these two thickeners would be identical as they both start out as fine-textured white powders. This is one of those cases where appearances can be deceiving. While arrowroot and corn starch are both effective thickeners,

    Results Experiment one tested how different concentrations of salt would change the rate of starch being broken down into maltose, using the enzyme amylase. For each of the solutions that did include enzyme, there was a dramatic change in the absorbance rate from time zero to 18 minutes. Figure 1 shows each absorbance level over the total 18 minutes. The 0% salt concentration had an absorbance of 2.5 at time zero and an absorbance of 0.056 after 18 minutes. The 2% salt concentration had an absorbance

    The Effect of pH Level on Starch Digestion by the Activity of Amylase and the Examination of the Rate of Starch Disappearance Using Iodine Solution Introduction A key enzyme found in the saliva of humans, alpha-amylase, is involved in the early stages of starch digestion. This type of amylase is classified by its glycosidic bonds and is mainly found in the bodies of animals. The digestion of starch will begin with the enzyme in saliva and will continue to break down starch as the food bolus reaches
