Summarizing Macromolecule Detection
Fill in the table below to illustrate how molecules in the above nutrition table were detected. What would you use as a Positive control? What would be the outcome of that Positive Control (color)? What about negative controls? Using the nutrition label above or a similar one, indicate what the test result would be if using the individual tests and indicate if that molecule is absent or present. Remember, if the sugars (simple reducing sugars) and the dietary fiber don’t add up to the total carbohydrates, the remainder is starch.
