The Chemistry of Food – Day 1

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Summary:
Today we began our final chemistry topic, the chemistry of food. We went through a PowerPoint (posted below) that described how food is digested, what food is made of, and how calories are important. We also included a fun demo where students burned original Pringles and compared them to the reduced fat variety, and also burned Cheetos as compared to Veggie Stix. The difference in calories was obvious.
