Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff

Dyes color our world and are found in everything from clothing to food. Yet only seven dyes are used to make all of the artificial colors seen in food made in the United States. Food processing is a rigorous undertaking—explore how these dyes may change color under different chemical conditions. Students test four out of the seven FD&C food dyes with a series of reactants, including acidic and basic solutions, simulated hard water, and with oxidizing and reducing agents to determine whether or not a chemical reaction takes place. Includes reproducible student handouts, detailed background information, complete Teacher Notes with sample data and answers to all questions, and all necessary chemicals.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Fifteen reusable 24-well reaction plates are recommended and available separately.


Reaction Plates, 24-well
