  • We had to order this for an online biology class. The schools price was so expensive, I searched and found it here for much less. I also found the customer service a great help, then when I received the items, the quality was exceptional. Top quality glass beakers and test tubes, and durable trays and everything packed so well protected and easy instructions. So happy I ordered here. Thank you also for the help you gave me....

      Chemistry of Food Experiment Kit

      The Chemistry of Food Experiment Kit is a great way to demonstrate the connections between two or more subjects – in this case, chemistry and nutrition – which is the goal of many STEM initiatives.

      Learn about the chemical components of everyday foods as you test them with the chemicals provided in this kit. Perform qualitative tests for glucose, starch, protein, and vitamin C. This kit encourages students to discover through experimenting and gives them familiarity with chemistry lab procedures.

      The instructions include five experiments as well as ideas for students to try on their own. Comes with test tubes, a beaker, biuret reagent, benedict's solution, indophenol, iodine, and more. You provide items like crackers and juice. With your kitchen as the lab, test whatever you're curious about!

      Want to use this kit for a science fair project? See our experiment ideas below to get you started.

      You might also want to order a test tube brush to make cleaning up easier.

      Note: the biuret reagent has a shelf life of 12 months.

      Science Fair Project Ideas:

      • Which has more glucose-homemade or store-bought jam? You could try different brands of jams and jellies, including some with artificial sweetener.
      • Do lemons, limes, oranges, or grapefruits have more vitamin C? What about orange juice or lemon juice from the store vs. fresh? What about juice from concentrate?
      • Does canning or freezing change the nutrition of fruits and vegetables? Test fresh and preserved foods.

      Shipping Note: This item contains regulated chemicals and only ships Economy or UPS to a street address in the 50 US states.
