Understand the importance of proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids in living organisms. Students will learn to identify a positive test result for proteins using biuret reagent, examine the reaction between Benedict’s reagent and a simple sugar, use iodine/potassium iodide to test for the presence of starch, and test for the presence of lipids using a fat-soluble dye. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups. Teacher’s Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
