What's in our food, and how can we tell? With this kit, students will learn about carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids, and how our bodies use them as fuel. Once they understand the concepts, students will perform their own tests on provided samples to see if the samples contain any of those nutrients. A simple qualitative test allows students to easily observe the reaction taking place, allowing for a quick grasp of food testing concepts. Students will perform tests using Benedict's solution, biuret reagent, iodine and potassium iodide, and a fat-soluble dye to hunt for starches, fats, proteins, and more. Kit comes with enough material for 15 groups of students, and comes complete with teacher's manual, student study guide copy masters, and material safety data sheets (MSDS) for all included components.
