Ch. 11 | Nutrition

Chapter 11 Opening Video

This video sets the stage for what students will learn about food and nutrition in Chapter 11.

Overeating

This ACS Reactions video explains what happens when you eat too much.

3D Model of Stearic Acid

See a 3D rendering of stearic acid, illustrated in Figure 11.4.

3D Model of Glycerol

See a 3D rendering of glycerol, illustrated in Figure 11.5.


Fatty Acid Content

This flash-based simulation will allow students to investigate an unknown oil based on its fatty acid content. It helps students understand the graph in Figure 11.7.

Hydrogenation

This flash-based simulation allows students to investigate hydrogenation.

Olive Oil

This ACS Reactions video talks all about olive oil.

3D Model of Oleic Acid

See a 3D rendering of oleic acid (a cis fatty acid), illustrated in Figure 11.8.


3D Model of Elaidic Acid

See a 3D rendering of elaidic acid (a trans fatty acid), illustrated in Figure 11.8.

Measuring Fat

This video explains the procedure to investigate how much fat is in food.

3D Model of α-Glucose

See a 3D rendering of α-glucose, illustrated in Figure 11.11.

3D Model of β-Glucose

See a 3D rendering of β-glucose, illustrated in Figure 11.11.


3D Model of β-Fructose

See a 3D rendering of β-fructose, illustrated in Figure 11.11.

 

What's the Difference?

This ACS Reactions video explains the different between high-fructose corn syrup and sugar.

Why Things Taste Sweet

This ACS Reactions video explians why things taste sweet.

 

Protein Structure

This simulation allows students to combine amino acids (illustrated in Figure 11.17) to see the resulting protein from the combination.

3D Protein Structures

This simulation allows students to combine amino acids to create proteins.

Muscle & Protein

This ACS Reactions video explains how protein builds muscle.

Aspartame  

This ACS Reactions video investigates whether it is safe to ingest aspartame.

Vitamin Supplements

This ACS Reactions video examines the effectiveness of vitamin supplements.


Iron in Cereal

This video from Flinn Scientific show students a procedure that isolates iron from food.

Salt Content in Food

This video walks students through a procedure that will allow them to measure the salt content in food.

Eating and Exercise

This PhET simulation allows students to explore the relationship between diet, exercise, and weight.

Water and Food

This interactive simulation allows students to calculate their food water footprint.


Vertical Farming

This ACS Reactions video explains vertical farming and will help answer Your Turn 11.36.
