What is its role in the cells? Cells use carbohydrates as their main source of energy; however, glucose is the only form that can enter the cell and actually gets used. Other types of carbohydrates, such as fructose, lactose, sucrose… must first be broken down into glucose before being used by the cell. To maintain a constant supply of energy, the level of glucose in the blood must be balanced. Too many carbs can lead to obesity and blood pressure spikes.
The people who suffer from high levels of homocysteine are at a high risk so they need to consult doctor for the further treatments. Foods to be avoided to make a healthy blood vessels like pickles, oily foods, consumption of more salt, deli meat, frozen pizza, canned soups are to be reduced to maintain diet on the blood vessels and to avoid damages to our
The determination of physical properties of food and related products are a pre-requisite for planning and production engineering. The common analytical measurements in food industrial processing are brix and pH. Due to the logarithmic nature of the measurement, even small changes in pH are significant whereby each pH value represents a ten-fold increase in acid concentration. Variations of pH can impact flavour, consistency, and shelf-life. A pH meter must be calibrated before each use to ensure accurate measurements.
But as we grow up, we were introduced to many types of milk and one of it is cow’s milk. We were told that drinking milk is good for our health and most of the human being love to drink milk, but there are also some people who just cannot drink and swallow the milk even a sip of it. Milk produced by cow is high in saturated fats, the most important cause of high cholesterol levels, according to the American Heart Association. Therefore, we should not drink cow’s milk as the cow’s milk may not good for our bones, causing heart disease and contributes to digestive problems. Firstly, milk is not good for bones as it depletes the calcium from our bones.
Although milk has many advantages, in my view, milk also has bad results to our bodies. Milk gives you a variety of diseases. First, milk make you are Osteoporosis. Many people believe that milk can help to protect Osteoporosis because milk consists of high calcium. Our bodies need to maintain a balance of acid about twenty percent and alkaline approximately eighty percent and milk makes the body acidic so if you drink too much milk more than the body needs, the body will draw the calcium from the bones because the bones are accumulation of calcium.
To determine the rate of reaction there are many method to be used for example, measuring the mass after the product has been added and measuring the difference in mass on the duration of a digital scale. Another method, which will be used in this experiment is using a gas syringe to measure the volume of the gas which has been produced. The cylinder inside, will be pushed out to show a quantitative presentation of the volume produced by the reaction. Hypothesis I predict that the more baking powder added to the vinegar, the more reaction will take place causing for more gas to be produced per 10 seconds. There will be a gradual decrease in difference between volume in gas per 10 seconds over the duration of time.
In the first stage in the normal body, vitamin B12 binding proteins that found in saliva to enters the stomach. Then the stomach uses hydrochloric acid to liberate vitamin B12 from the proteins. However, in the first stage of pernicious anemia, the stomach excretes a small amount of hydrochloric acid. This leads to a failure of separate vitamin B12 from food proteins, which inhibit vitamin B12 from absorption. In addition, the lack of secretion of hydrochloric acid provides a suitable environment for a reproduction of gut bacteria.
The Alkaline Types Excess daily intake of foods too alkaline for your metabolic type causes cellular membranes to become too permeable, allowing free radicals and toxins to enter, which hinders normal nutrient intake of and waste excretion. A healthy pancreas produces bicarbonate to neutralize stomach acids and pro- vide a pH environment for pancreatic enzymes to be effective in breaking down food. Bicarbonate acts as a buffer to maintain normal acid levels. By definition, metabolic alkalosis is increasing levels of bicarbonate ions. The or- gans involved in the regulation of acid/alkaline balance are the lungs and kid- neys.
Vitamin C is sensitive to temperature (presence of heat), exposure to light and exposure to air (oxygen). It is considered ‘the most easily destroyed vitamin’.  Hypothesis: If the Vitamin C is to be frozen and thawed then the molecules will be destroyed, thus decreasing the concentration of the substance. According to the experiment, the main factor that will have to be taken into account of when freezing, will be the blanching process. This process destroys about 25% of the Vitamin C prior to the substance becoming frozen.
Hot air drying is a conventional method for dehydrating food but for heat sensitive materials ,this method can cause deteriorative changes .to have much more effective dehydration a high power ultrasound system is applied. In such a case ultrasound waves are generated using the ultrasound system and then contacted with food samples directly. In the intersection between ultrasound waves and samples, ultrasound waves penetrate in samples which results in contraction and expansion of material and moisture evaporation from samples [1, 11, 13,
