Description

Overview:
Chemical reactions play an important role in our digestive system. This activity will allow you to observe one of those reactions, known as a decomposition reaction.  Decomposition is a reaction that breaks down a complex substance into simpler substances. You will be using the enzyme amylase to break down a starch into a simple sugar. This lab will simulate what is happening in your mouth when your saliva (which contains the enzyme amylase) begins to break down the complex carbohydrate starch.
