This Lab-Aid Food Nutrient Analysis kit uses pure samples of the nutrients in order to standardize the tests. Students work in teams to test for and identify five classes of nutrients, such as sugar, starch, lipid, protein and Vitamin C.
Once the tests have been completed and the students’ observations have been made, they are then asked to draw conclusions about their results, the control variable and samples that showed no reaction. This is a great school science learning kit to demonstrate scientific methods, practices and processes.
It is necessary to have a hot water bath available for the test of simple sugars. Unlike the other variation of this food analysis, this food nutrient kit has an indefinite shelf-life.

Children and adults need a wide range of nutrients to perform various functions in their body and live a healthier lifestyle. Some of the frequently mentioned nutrients include proteins, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. These and other nutrients are chemical substances which are present in the food we eat daily. Interestingly enough, learning the types of nutrients found in common food allows us to be more conscious with our daily dietary plans.
This Lab-Aid Food Nutrient Analysis kit is a valuable science learning kit for students to enhance their understanding about the most common types of nutrients found in food. The procedures will help them explore the science of nutrition and draw their own conclusions – based on their analysis – in a scientific manner. Moreover, the food analysis experiment will help them identify and give an example of the 4 basic food groups.
The Lab-Aid Food Nutrient Analysis kit is designed for Educational Purposes ONLY. The kit is not intended for Clinical or Diagnostic use.
