Explore Possibilities: Biology
(This is an optional activity. Wait for your teacher's instructions before beginning.)
In a macromolecule test, different colors indicate the presence of macromolecules.
In this activity, you will analyze a children's meal from a local fast food restaurant to confirm or deny the presence of fat, protein, simple carbohydrates (sugar) and complex carbohydrates (starch).
This slideshow describes the basic procedures for identifying macromolecules in foods.
