Cynthia Vang Derrick 24 Title: Digestion of Starch Problem: Hypothesis: If synthetic saliva breaks down the cracker the most Then more of the cracker should be digested Because synthetic saliva contains amylase, and amylase helps break down complex carbohydrates. Interpretation: Data Table: The results of the iodine and Benedict’s tests for the Carbohydrate lab Test Tube contents and number Color of iodine test Color of Benedict’s test How much is present? 0= none 1= present...

Test for starch

a negative result. To explain, both DI water, and sucrose alone do not contain a trace of protein. In addition, deionized water is commonly used in experiments as a negative control. In both experiments, if the DI water is tested for a protein or starch, then it will come back as a negative. If milk solution, and 50% egg white solution are tested for proteins using the biuret solution, then there will be positive results because both of these are composed of protein macromolecules. The use of condensed...

Saliva on Starch

Experiment 9. The action of saliva on starch Study the flow chart on p. 9.02 for a few minutes to gain an idea of the outline of the experiment. (a) Prepare a water bath by using a Bunsen burner to heat some water in a beaker on a tripod and gauze till it boils; then turn the flame down to keep the water just boiling. While waiting for the water to boil, carry on from (b). (b) Label eight test-tubes 1 - 8 and in tube 1 collect saliva as follows: (i) Thoroughly rinse the mouth with...

Treating Starch

Treating Starch How are starch and cellulose treated to allow them to be used in yeast? Starches: · All potable alcohol and most fermentation industrial alcohol is currently made principally from grains. · Fermentation of starch from grain is somewhat more complex than fermentation of sugars because starch must first be converted to sugar and then to ethanol. · Starch is converted enzymatically to glucose either by diastase presents in sprouting grain or by fungal amylase. · The resulting...

Peerless Starch

Peerless strategy Case Overview The first plant of the Peerless starch industry was started in Blair during the civil war times. It is one of the highest wages paying plants in the region sporting a five story building supported by two massive towers. The other plants in the region have all shut down and currently Peerless starch is the only active plant in the region and it employs 8000 of the 120000 residents of the Blair. Company has three more plants in Illinois, Oregon and Texas which...

Dialysis of Starch

Dialysis of starch, glucose and sucrose Introduction: Research question: Does the dialysis tube only allow certain substances to pass through the pores because of their size? Dependent and Independent variables: Independent variables: The temperature of the classroom The size of the molecules The size of the pores in the tube The concentration of the indicators Dependent variables: The substance will either pass the pores of the tube or not The result will vary in darkness (color) Controlled...

How Amylase Digests Starch

food molecules into smaller ones so that the blood can absorb them. Enzymes turn a large starch molecule into thousands of tiny glucose molecules. Enzymes end in 'ase'. There are thousands of enzymes in our body but each enzyme is only specialised to do one thing, for example carbohydraise enzymes digest carbohydrates, protease enzymes digest protein. Prediction I predict that the amylase will digest the starch the best and the quickest at around room temperature, (35 C-45 C). I have come to this...

Starch Hydrolysis by Amylase

Experiment 2: Starch Hydrolysis by Amylase Theoretical Background Polymers of carbohydrates are called polysaccharides, and make up some of the most important naturally occurring compounds [1]. They have thousands of monosaccharide units linked to each other by oxygen bridges. They include starch, glycogen, and cellulose, all three of which yield only glucose when completely hydrolyzed [2]. A B Figure 1. Starch (amylose) (A) and cellulose (B) Starch occurs...

The Iodine Test sor Starch

glucose-1-phosphate, 1% maltose, honey, 1% sucrose, 1%lactose, 1% glycogen, 1% starch, protein, beer, distilled water and an unknown solution (test tube: 300). The iodine test for starch was to test how would starch reacted if we put iodine in it. The color of starch before the test was clear. The color of the iodine was brown. When you added iodine into starch, the result was the starch solution turned dark blue. Starch had a positive result is because of the complex of iodine stuck inside the amylase...

Starch Lab Write Up

Starch is a type of Carbohydrate that’s made from thousands of glucose units. Simple sugars are the basic units that make up starch. Carbohydrates provide us with energy so that we can carry out our daily routines. Our body then digests it into glucose so we can have energy to do that. Saliva is a form of chemical digestion that is in the mouth. Amylase is an enzyme that catalysts the breakdown of starch into sugars. Amylase is present in human saliva, where it begins the chemical process of digestion...
