Test Properties of Enzymes in Household Products
A variety of enzymes are used in food preparation and cleaning applications. Students investigate three functions of enzymes with this lab activity, learning why some detergents claim to have “enzymatic” cleaning strength and what that means; how meat tenderizers really work; and how curds and whey are made. The kit includes enough materials for 12 setups, as well as instructor’s and assessment manuals and student data sheets.
