Yeast will take every opportunity to proliferate and normally, our gut friendly bacteria ensure that the levels are optimal, but when these factors are affected , yeast will multiply. Multiplication of yeast is caused by several factors , a nutrient poor diet and stress will suppress our immune systems and upset the balance of friendly bacteria. Antibiotics used to treat ear,nose and throat infections (tetracycline and vybramycin ) will eradicate all the friendly bacteria (acidophilus, bifidus, bulbous etc) in the colon.

In addition, children would have had lower immune systems, and would be more prone to contracting the illness.

Yeast does not metabolize all carbohydrates equally. In the lab, we tested many different type of carbohydrates, and results showed that some carbohydrates produced more of a reaction that others. For example, results show that maltose and dextrose produced more than other carbohydrates, such as cellulose. Maltose produced enough carbon to fill the balloon to a circumference of 194.9 cm3, dextrose produced enough carbon to fill the balloon to a circumference of 145 cm3, while cellulose didn’t produce any carbon for the balloon, the circumference measured to 0 cm3.

Joshua Miller 12/18/17 Fermentation Lab report Introduction The term fermentation refers to the chemical breakdown of a substance by bacteria, yeasts, or other microorganisms, typically involving effervescence and the giving off of heat (wikipedia). Sugars are converted to ethyl alcohol when fermentation happens. In this experiment we determined if yeast cells undergo fermentation when placed in a closed flask with no oxygen. Glucose and yeast are mixed together in a closed flask and allowed to incubate for about one hour.
