Food Test – Glucose & Starch

Food Test – Glucose & Starch

IN THIS EXPERIMENT YOU WILL…

Test for the presence of glucose and starch as well as learn that all organic chemicalsA broad class of substances containing carbon and its derivatives. Many of these chemicals will frequently contain hydrogen with or without oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, phosphorus, and other elements. contain the elements Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen. There are three basic organic substances that we are working with, these are Carbohydrates, A carbohydrate is a biomolecule consisting of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms, usually with a hydrogen–oxygen atom ratio of 2:1 and thus with the empirical formula Cₘₙ. This formula holds true for monosaccharides. LipidsA lipid is chemically defined as a substance that is insoluble in water and soluble in alcohol, ether, and chloroform. and ProteinsProteins are large, complex molecules that play many critical roles in the body. They do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body's tissues and organs. Carbohydrates can be divided into Monosaccharide’sProteins are large, complex molecules that play many critical roles in the body. They do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body's tissues and organs. e.g. Glucose; Disaccharides A disaccharide (also called a double sugar or bivose) is the sugar formed when two monosaccharides (simple sugars) are joined by glycosidic linkage e.g. Sugar and Polysaccharidesa carbohydrate (e.g. starch, cellulose, or glycogen) whose molecules consist of a number of sugar molecules bonded together. e.g. Starch.
