Browning of Fruit Experiment Classroom Kit

John Edward Hodge spent a lifetime in food service research. His specialty was the chemistry of browning reactions in food, such as the toasting of bread or the caramelization of sugar. In today's food industry, some scientists try to increase browning, as with microwaved foods. Others seek ways to reduce browning, as with produce on salad bars.

This lab will explore the browning of cut fruit. Students will be able to observe the browning reactions of sliced apples in various solutions in test tubes.

 
This Experiment is designed to accomodate 24 students working in groups of 4

In 1996 MacNan Biologicals set out on a mission to meld historical facts with scientific exploration focusing on the accomplishments of African American scientists. MacNan Biologicals, located in historic Birmingham, Alabama enlisted experts in the fields of science and education to prepare these kits. The representative scientists selected were chosen for the significant accomplishments they achieved in their particular fields of expertise. It is our hope that the “Focus on African American Scientists Series” will motivate students to seek a greater understanding of science and consider careers on the scientific frontier.
 
MacNan Biologicals has also partnered with the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute to conduct seminars to teach teachers how to bring science alive in the classroom. Please inquire about our workshops and group seminars for professional teacher training. Our professional sales staff is ready to assist you.
