How to Test Yogurt for Starch With Iodine



A complex interconnected series of sugar molecules (saccharides) comprise starch molecules. To test for the presence of these polysaccharides (many sugar) structured starches you will need iodine. Often used as a science experiment, the iodine acts as an indicator, changing color when it combines with starches. Use this technique for yogurt, or any other substance in which you wish to find starches. A color change occurs from the complex network of starches trapping the iodine molecules, revealing a blue-black color. The iodine will not change color in reaction to simple sugars, such as sucrose or fructose, because these do not retain iodine between the sugar molecules the way starches do.Di

How to Make a Topping With Yogurt Chips & Potato Starch
Hobbies, Games & Toys
Yogurt chips, while they might sound healthy, aren't. They're loaded with high-fructose corn syrup and often have added chocolate. However, they are a fun alternative to the everyday snack. Potato starch, on the other hand, is a staple in the gluten-free community, used to thicken sauces, replace flour in gluten-free recipes, and to moisten baked goods. Yogurt chips and potato starch are uniting in this gluten-free topping recipe. This topping can be used to give crunch and texture to ice cream or yogurt, or to adorn the top of a cake or pie.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Things You'll Need

Starch can be a dietary concern for diabetics or those watching their weight as it can be easily digested and then, raise blood sugar levels quickly. To test for the presence of starch in yogurt, you will need to use iodine. The colored chemical reaction in response to the iodine mixture can indicate any starches present.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Things You'll Need

How to Fix Iodine With Starch
Hobbies, Games & Toys
Fingerprints help solve crimes and missing persons cases every day. Some of these cases may be years old, but modern technology allows investigators to lift and fix even old prints using iodine and starch. The iodine sticks to the latent oils from the print and the starch mixes with the iodine and makes a lightly sticky paste that quickly hardens into a permanent stamp. You may fix fingerprints for fun at home or in the classroom using methods similar to those used in the field.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Things You'll Need

How to Test for Iodine in the Soil
Hobbies, Games & Toys
When testing your soil for iodine, the same procedure is followed as for any other soil test. The sample must be taken from a wide range of areas, and you must maintain the integrity of the sample by using properly cleaned, un-galvanized stainless steel tools and clean buckets for mixing. Iodine is naturally occurring in the soil, especially in coastal and rocky areas. It is largely beneficial, as our bodies need a certain amount in order for proper thyroid function. We get our iodine mostly from the food we eat, such as seafood, vegetables and salt with iodine artificially added.Difficulty:EasyInstructions Things You'll Need

How to Test for Iodine Number in Stearic Acid
Hobbies, Games & Toys
The iodine value is a measure of the unsaturation of fatty acids and is expressed in terms of the number of centigrams of iodine absorbed per gram of sample (percent iodine absorbed). Iodine number test is applicable to all normal fatter acids. Stearic acid belongs to this class of fatty acids.

What Does Lugol's Iodine Test for?
Hobbies, Games & Toys
In 1829, French physician Jean Guillaume Auguste Lugol created a solution of potassium iodide and elemental iodine in distilled water. Called Lugol's iodine, the solution has been used as a disinfectant, antiseptic and to disinfect drinking water during an emergency.
Over time, it has been discovered that Lugol's iodine is useful for testing a number of things. From testing for starch, to testing for vaginal cancer cells, to testing for thyroid function, Lugol's iodine has been both diagnostic and preventative. Testing for StarchFruits, vegetables and other organic compounds that contain starch carbohydrates can be identified with the application of Lugol's iodine
