This experiment is an introductory experiment to the overall topic of digestion and metabolism in the human body. It is suitable as a qualitative introduction to the topic of digestion for the age group up to 16 years. However, further study of the topic of metabolism necessitates considerable basic knowledge of organic chemistry and biochemistry, which cannot be assumed until the age group 16+ or acquired then. The materials supplied allow eight groups of students to conduct the experiments simultaneously.

The experiment comprises two subexperiments:
• Potatoes contain starch
• Hydrolysis of starch

Notes:
• Observe the safety information in the instructions as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
• All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.
There are no other media directly related to this file.
