Starch test for biology sba proteins purpose: to test for the presence of starches and protein macromolecules, to introduce the concept of variations in chemical compounds hypothesis: if biuret is blue after a test for protein, then it is a negative result because biuret reagent is blue to begin with.
The warmth enhances the yeast’s metabolism and causes it to work faster at raising the dough one enzyme goes to work on the flour, changing the starch in it into sugar another enzyme then takes over and changes the sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide.
