Product Details

Chemistry at the Table gives some good background information on oils, triglycerides, and saturated vs. unsaturated fats. Students experiment with properties that determine the quality, appearance, taste, texture, and smell of foods. High school students will enjoy making pleasant-smelling esters and determining the fat content of snack foods. Students of all ages will benefit by discovering the differences between fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins. Elementary students can discover how flavors of food are perceived through a combination of taste and smell. Students will learn the role of chemistry in designing food products which are appealing, stable, and healthy for consumers.
