Sweet as Sugar (SBD-5247-KIT)

Price:   $93.20   

Would cake taste just as good if the baker used a sugar substitute instead of sugar? Many people prefer not to use sugar, often due to health reasons, and instead depend on sugar substitutes to sweeten their foods. But are sugar substitutes the same as sugar? And what exactly are the differences between sugar and sugar substitutes? Buy this food science project kit to find out!

We've included in this science kit all the precision measurement tools you'll need for a successful experiment. You will compare the sweetness of sugar and 3 different types of sugar substitutes. Can you tell the difference? Find some friends and test the substitutes on them. Their sugar preferences will be part of the data you collect! This kit follows the procedures from the Science Buddies food science project Sweet as Sugar: Comparing the Sweetness of Sugar & Sugar Substitutes.

Kits contain tested materials to ensure that you have what you need to successfully complete your science project, have fun, and learn some science along the way!
