Teach & Taste: Lesson Plans and Demos

Students are hungry to learn. These lesson plans and demonstrations are provided to help you plant the seed of food science knowledge, and to help your students understand what happens behind the scenes of the food and drinks they love.

Food Science Demo using chemistry & culinary arts together

Do you want to learn something new and try to create an encapsulation? In this demonstration you will have a chance to see a chemical reaction take place right before your eyes. This type of reaction is called a ‘double bond replacement’ in chemistry class or ‘molecular gastronomy’ in the culinary world. Grab some Sodium Alginate and Calcium Chloride (you can buy both ingredients online), a blender and water to get started. Watch the video and get started! **TIP: If you buy food grade Sodium Alginate & Calcium Chloride, you can taste your experiment!**
