  • Body Fat Research Paper

    Lipids have a significant energy role, but also a fundamental role in the composition of the membranes of cells, nuclei, and nervous tissue. Focus on these fats and the foods that contain them. Edible fats Dietary fats should be present in the daily diet at 2-3 g / kg bodyweight per day (30-35% of total energy intake). But this rate is very easily exceeded because lipids are not always visible. The hidden fats are those that are contained in foods that do not appear fatty: meat, cold meats,…

  • Ferric Chloride Test Lab Report

    Introduction The ferric chloride test is used to determine the presence of phenols in a given sample or compound (for instance natural phenols in a plant extract). Enols, hydroxamic acids, oximes, and sulfinic acids give positive results as well. The ferric chloride test can be used to detect metabolites in urine in case of inborn error of metabolism such as phenylketonuria. In addition,the Ferric Chloride test can be used to detect salicylates in urine after an aspirin overdose.1 Background…

  • The Ketogenic Lifestyle: Paleo Diet And Carbohydrate Diet

    like Paleo diet and Atkins diet have in common is that both diets start with a low intake of carbohydrate. Carbohydrates consumed is converted to glucose and it allows the body to make use of the glucose as a source of energy. However, it is important for the pancreas to release insulin into the bloodstream so that our cells will be able to access the glucose and have it converted to energy. The problem lies when we take too much carbohydrate in our body- making us fat and even suffer from blood…

  • Emulsifying Properties Of Spirulina In Ice Cream

    Emulsifying properties of aqueous extract of Spirulina in ice cream Table 7 presents the results of the developed O/W and W/O emulsifiers of the developed ice cream formulations. The O/W activities of the formulations of aqueous extract of Spirulina presented higher ativity when compared to the standard formulation, the formulations without emulsifier (F2) and without chantilly (F3) showed no significant difference (p0.05) on the surface tensions values found in the analyzes. The formulations…

  • Vitamin C Titration

    Table 1: Experimental data for standardization of iodine solution. Calculation of standardization factor Standardization factor = (mass of vitamin C titrated) / (Volume of iodine solution used) = (125g) / (41.3ml) = 3.03 mg vitamin C/ml iodine solution Experiment B: Vitamin C titration using fresh fruit sample to determine the content The tabulated experimental data for this experiment is shown below (Table 2). In this experiment, the amount of vitamin C was calculated by multiplying…

  • Aerobic Respiration Lab Report

    part of the same complex, initiating succinate oxidation, this reaction reduces FAD to FADH2. Thus the oxidation of succinate to furmarate. Anaerobic Respiration: If a solution of yeast and glucose is combined and placed in different incubation temperatures, then the amount of gas that is released from the test tube will increase with temperature. This is because the “Kinetic Theory” explains that the extent of a molecules movement depends on its state and temperature. As temperature…

  • The Effect Of Temperature On Cellular Respiration

    available. The organism that we studied was germinating mung bean seeds. We used a system called respirometer which includes a test tube that is to be filled with the seeds until approximately 3 cm before the top. Other parts that were included was the syringe, and a 1ml pipette, with both the syringe and the pipette threaded through a cork cap that is placed onto the test tube. We are trying to measure the respiration rate. We achieved this by using the respirometer with the syringe fully…
