FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q1. Describe the Test for Starch to Identify the Carbohydrates in Food.

Ans. It is effortless to test for the starch to identify the presence of carbohydrates in food. For this, we need to take a small number of food items as a sample. Then add a few drops of iodine solution to the food item and observe the change. If the food changes its colour to the shade of combination of blue and black, then we can consider this as the presence of carbohydrates in that food. If the colour is not absorbed, there are no carbohydrates in that food item.

Q2. How can we Identify the Presence of Fat in the Food Particles?

Ans. We can identify the presence of fat in the food particles by testing for fat. It is simpler than the other tests. We need to take the food item whichever we want to test and wrap it in a paper carefully without tearing it. After wrapping, crush it nicely and then open the paper and make it straighten slowly. Now remove the food particles and observe the proper after being crushed. If you observe any oil patches on that paper, it means the fat is present in that food particle.
