Product Description
This lab simulates the contents of the stomach and proves how it digests protein. The lab uses pepsin, HCl and egg white and students can see that both pepsin and HCl are needed to digest the egg white. The lab can also be completed with other materials such as carrots (carbohydrates) and beef fat (lipids) to show that the HCl and pepsin does not digest these two nutrients. The lab includes data tables and a detailed procedure for each student group to follow.
