The Food Ingredients Project





Project 1-  Ingredients Project

You have been assigned a group to participate in creating a wiki for understanding typical ingredients that are in our foods.


Remember to list the ingredients of your food on your wiki page! Remember we are trying to answer questions and create a complete, in depth, document that is capable of easily conveying information to the public. 


You will answer the following questions on your wiki page regarding the food you have chosen to research.



     1.   What is the ingredient? Oftentimes ingredients have complicated names that can be "translated" into laymen's terms.

        Please attempt to identify the ingredient with common vernacular.


    2. What other foods is this ingredient commonly found?


    3. What is the purpose of ingredient? Does it serve a particular role in the food? Emulsifier? Preservative?


    4. Are there controversies surrounding the ingredient? Has it been implicated or accused of particular health concerns?


    5. Include pictures of the ingredient and if possible the chemical structure?
