  • 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

      Few activities capture and keep kids' interest like those involving food. By conducting food chemistry experiments, students finally get rewarded for playing with their food!

      Connect the dots between science and nutrition with our food chemistry experiment kit. Use the provided lab-grade chemicals and lab ware to test food for protein, vitamin C, and more!

      Learn about the chemistry behind everyday foods as you test them with the chemicals provided in this kit. Perform qualitative tests (indicating presence) for chemical components, such as:

      • Glucose, a simple carbohydrate
      • Starch, a complex carbohydrate
      • Protein, made up of amino acids
      • Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid

      Even reluctant students and parents become confident food chemists as they test food for proteins, fats, and simple & complex carbohydrates. This science experiment kit promotes discovery through hands-on labs and gives kids familiarity with essential procedures, such as:

      • Forming a hypothesis
      • Making an aqueous solution
      • Mixing & measuring
      • Recording & charting data

      The step-by-step instructional manual guides you through five experiments and includes suggestions for more food chemistry projects to tackle independently. Use the included charts to record results. With your kitchen or classroom as the food chemistry lab, test whatever interests you!

      Experiment kit includes:

      • 6 test tubes, a rack, and holder
      • 5 lab-grade chemicals
      • Beaker and pipettes
      • Lab manual & wax pencil

      See our experiment ideas below on how to use this kit for a food chemistry science fair project.

      Science Fair Project Ideas:

      • Which has more glucose—homemade or store-bought jam? 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.

      With this kit, many people also order a test tube brush for easy cleanup and a mortar and pestle to help make liquid solutions from solid foods.

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

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