BENEFITS OF COOKING in case of Vitamin C
BENEFITS OF COOKING in case of Vitamin C At this point, one may wonder why do we cook food if it is disadvantageous to us. There are some benefits that result from cooking: firstly, when you cook food, harmful micro organisms that are food- borne are destroyed. Additionally, the digestibility of many foods ( e.g. starch foods ) increases on cooking. Although this is not the most important benef

“What is the effect of cooking time on the Vitamin C content in cabbages?”
Vitamin C, which is also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin needed by the human body. It has a chemical structure of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Pure ascorbic acid (vitamin C) appears white in color. However, when it is impure, its color changes into a slightly yellowish color. Moreover, when it dissolves in water, it turns the water mildly acidic. Many animals can manufacture vit

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a substance that has been closely studied throughout history by many people. There have been many different experiments carried out to observe the effects of this substance. One such investigation was carried out in the department of Food Science and Microbiology, in the University of Milan by Serena Guarnieri, Patrizia Riso and Marisa Porrini. Vitamin C seems to be

Test on Mole concept
Test on Mole concept 1.In industry calcium oxide is often used to remove water vapour from gas mixtures. The water reacts to form calcium hydroxide. The equation for the reaction of calcium oxide with water vapour is CaO(s) + H2O(g)  Ca(OH)2(s) i) Calculate the relative formula masses of calcium oxide and water. (Relative atomic masses: H = 1.0; O = 16; Ca = 40)  &nb
