Vitamin C

Research Question: How the amount of vitamin C in fruit juices affects its freshness and till what extent is the information provided on the pack by manufacturers is reliable? Background Information: Hypothesis: -fresh juices have more vitamin C than long-life -juice that is ‘not from concentrate’ is best in terms of vitamin content -if heat destroys vitamin C then heat-treated long-life juices will have lower concentrations -if heat destroys vitamin C then boiled fruit juice will have...

Vitamin C Content of a Lemon

INTRODUCTION In our experiment we tested the amount of vitamin C in a certain amount of lemon juice. We did this with the help of PCPIP which is an indicator that shows the presence if C vitamin. For this we used the mentioned indicator, pipette, three eprouvetes, 0.1% of C vitamin solution and lemon juice. First we had to get the volume of 0.1% vitamin C solution that is needed for our amount of PCPIP (2ml) to decolorize. Then we had to determine the volume of lemon juice that is needed to...

Vitamin C

Vitamin C –A Natural Antioxidant Concept: Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an antioxidant. The amount of vitamin C content in food can be found out by titrating with an oxidising agent, e.g. iodine. In the reaction, vitamin C is oxidised, while iodine is reduced to iodide ions. The endpoint is determined by the formation of blue-black starch-iodine complex when all vitamin C is oxidised and excess iodine is free to react with the starch solution added as indicator. Introduction Vitamin C is an...

the vitamin content of fruit juice

THE VITAMIN C CONTENT OF FRUIT JUICE Aim: To investigate the vitamin C content of fruit juice.Hypothesis: I believe the more drops of fruit juice taken to decolourise DCPIP, the smaller the amount of vitamin C in that fruit juice. This is because DCPIP needed to be decolourised by ascorbic acid in fruit juice, so less concentration of ascorbic acids means that more ascorbic acids is needed to decolourised DCPIP. I believe that freshly squeezed orange is going to have the most Vitamin C content...

Biology Vitamin C

Investigating the vitamin C content of fruits and fruit juice Aim: In this investigation, I aim to measure and compare whether there is a higher content of vitamin C in a fruit or a juice by measuring the volume of the sample required to decolourise a solution of dichlorophenolindophenol (DCPIP). Introduction: For this experiment, I aim to investigate and compare the content of vitamin C in the fruit against the fruit juice. The theory of this method is a titration with dichlorophenolindophenol...
