    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

    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

    orange juices‚ and we also used 0.1% of vitamin C solution. The aim of our experiment was to see how much DCPIP was needed to be added to make the orange juices turn back to the orange colour and the DCPIP to decolourise once the 0.1% of vitamin C was added. DCPIP is a blue dye in its non-reduced form; it becomes colourless when it gains electrons. Vitamin C is an anti – oxidant‚ this is found mainly in fresh fruit and vegetables. The main use of Vitamin C is that it neutralises free radicals‚ which

    Determination of Vitamin C by an Iodometric Titration Purpose: The goal of this lab is to determine the concentration of vitamin C in juices and Real Lemon. A redox titration‚ involving an iodometric method‚ will be used to do the analysis. The samples will be classified by their Vitamin C content. Introduction: Although most mammals can synthesize vitamin C‚ or ascorbic acid (C6H8O6)‚ from sugars‚ man must ingest considerable quantities of this substance. The National Academy of Sciences recommends

    IB Biology Lab – Vitamin C content of food Aim: To compare the vitamin C content of different fruits using the decolourisation of DCPIP from blue to clear as the indicator. • You first need to estimate the volume of a known concentration of vitamin C solution required to decolourise 2 cm3 of DCPIP solution. • Then you need to determine the volume of fruit juice that decolourises 2 cm3 of DCPIP solution. This gives an estimate of the concentration of vitamin C in fruit juice. • This

  • Vitamin C and Scurvy

    Scurvy (N.Lat. scorbutus) is a deficiency disease that results from insufficient intake of vitamin C‚ which is required for correct collagen synthesis in humans. The scientific name of vitamin C‚ ascorbic acid‚ is derived from the Latin name of scurvy‚ scorbutus. Scurvy leads to the formation of liver spots on the skin‚ spongy gums‚ and bleeding from all mucous membranes. The spots are most abundant on the thighs and legs‚ and a person with the ailment looks pale‚ feels depressed‚ and is partially
