High-fructose corn syrup metabolizes to fat in the human body much faster than other sugars, resulting in increased fat gain. Since the fructose is consumed in liquid form, the negative effects on human metabolism are even greater (Barrett). High fructose corn syrup is not digested by the body as easily as natural sugar is. It takes the human body one day to digest natural sugar, while it takes up to four days to digest a serving of high fructose corn syrup. This means that your body is continuously working to digest high fructose corn syrup if the body consumes processed foods or drink soda on a regular basis.
High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) was introduced back in the 1970’s and quickly filled the demand within the soft drink industry. Sodas depended heavily on the sugar cane as a natural sweetener; unfortunately it was unstable and volatile. HFCS provided consistency and was easily accessible when it was introduced and financially made more sense when compared to the unsteady cost of sugar. Before you knew it, HFCS found its way into foods and was no longer just for the soft drink industry. Today, HFCS can be found in just about every food product that you can think of.
Purpose/ objectives: 1. To learn if food concentrations affect yeast activity 2. To improve skills in writing a lab report better 3. To practice measuring skills 4. To understand how yeast works Materials: * * 6 identical large test tubes (18 X 150mm) * 1 graduated cylinder (24ml) * Molasses stock solution ( 1:4- molasses: water) Dropper * Yeast suspension (1 gram of dry yeast in 100 mls water) * Aluminum foil * 1 test tube rack * 1 graduated cylinder (small) * 1 beaker * 6 small test tube (10 X 75mm) * Rule marked in millimeters Hypothesis: If you add more molasses to the yeast then the gas would became greater because the yeast cells reproduce so the waste became greater and
All viruses have genes made from either DNA or RNA, long molecules that carry genetic information, all have protein coats that protect these genes and some have an envelope of fat that surrounds them when they are outside a cell. FUNGI Fungi or worms that live in or on a host to obtain nourishment without providing any benefit to the host fungi. There are many different varieties of fungi, and we eat quite a few of them mushrooms are fungi, as is the mould that forms the blue or green veins in some types of cheese. Also, yeast is another type of fungi and a necessary ingredient in bread .Few serious fungal diseases occur in the U.K., so you are highly unlikely to come across any that can cause serious illness
Taste Test: Splenda vs. Sugar Taste Test: Splenda vs. Sugar Introduction Americans are more health conscience now than they were decades ago which is why they are completely dedicated to finding ways to consistently reducing the caloric and sugar intake in their diets. As a result, many are focusing on the use of artificial sweeteners and sugar substitutes. Because of this health conscience era, the use of Splenda, in particular is used in just about every food, drink, candy etc. Splenda, along with other artificial sugar product, is popular because it does not add any calories, but what makes Splenda stand apart from other sugar substitutes is its claim that it is made from sugar and taste exactly like sugar. Although widely accepted, there are those that prefers the use and taste of nothing but regular sugar because they do not like the tast of the artificial sugars on the market, however, although Splenda’s claim of being made from sugar and taste exactly like sugar, there are those that swear that they could taste the difference between the two.
Failure to do so results in their immune system producing antibodies which attacks the lining of their bowel causing them to have abdominal pains, constipation/diarrhoea, bloating, difficulty in gaining weight in childhood or maintaining weight in adulthood and anaemia.

Renaissance physician Paracelsus famously said, "The dose makes the poison," meaning that even harmless substances can become toxic if you eat enough of them. Many people ask me, "Is high fructose syrup really that bad for you?" And my answer to this question is "Yes," mainly for this very reason. In America today, we are eating huge doses of sugar, especially high fructose corn syrup. It is sweeter and cheaper than regular sugar and is in every processed food and sugar-sweetened drink.
You'll also find it in processed foods ranging from salad dressings and ketchup, to jams, jellies, ice cream and many others - even bread. HFCS contains 14-percent fructose, much more than regular corn syrup. I'm concerned that it has disruptive effects on metabolism, because the body doesn't utilize fructose well, and humans have never before consumed it in such quantity.Of course, HFCS isn't solely to blame for the obesity epidemic. The AMA correctly pointed out that as consumption of HFCS rose, Americans were also consuming more calories (of all kinds) and becoming less active. All told, however, consumption of HFCS in the United States increased by more than 1,000 percent between 1970 and 1990, and a study published in the April 2004 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, concluded that Americans over the age of two consume more than 300 calories daily from caloric sweeteners, one-sixth of their average daily calories.
