HELP! QUESTIONS ABOUT Sucrose & Glucose & Fructose, Oh My! Uncovering Hidden Sugar in Your Food experiment.

Postby TS04 » Sun Oct 18, 2020 6:10 pm

I decided to use this project for my school fair but I have a couple of questions because I am not entirely clear about the project itself. First I am a little confused as to what I should name this project. Right now my title is Testing Various Food Formulas for Glucose Concentrations Before and After Adding Invertase. However, it would be nice if it was in the format of the cause of _____ on the effect of _______. But I don't know how to word it properly, or should I just stick to the title I have right now because I'm not sure if it is correct.

Also, my hypothesis is currently "If invertase is added to honey, then it will result in the highest glucose concentration." I was also wondering if this is worded properly.

Next, I have researched and tried to find a lot of peer reviewed articles related to this study but I couldn't seem to find any full articles without paying any money. I was wondering if anyone could help find some helpful sources or knew additional information about this topic (It could be about anything, the DV, IV, Rationale, Procedure, Conclusion, Results, etc.) Any information is greatly appreciated.

Lastly, thank you so much for taking the time to read this and help me out! I really appreciate it!

Hello,

This sounds like a fun project! Your hypothesis looks good. Below is a link for more details on how to write a hypothesis. For your title I think you can look at your hypothesis for inspiration. For example, "increased glucose concentration from invertase in honey."

For peer reviewed articles the Bibliography section of the project is a good place to start. You may also have access to some scholarly journals through your local library or school library without paying for access.
