... The effect of different Sugar Type on the speed of Energy Production in Yeast Fermentation Respiration is the metabolic process, through which carbohydrates are converted into energy for synthesis by cells. The process is important, as it allows for the breakdown of food compounds, especially sugar – which are then absorbed by cells. The materials required during the study include four 100 ml beakers labeled as 1-4, a 200 ml beaker, deionized water; 5% glucose, fructose and sucrose solutions. Others materials included a sugar solution, yeast, a 300 Celsius water bath and four fermentation tubes, labeled as 1-4.The experiment involved using different sugar compounds: glucose, sucrose and fructose....
