    The Digestive System Thomastennis345

    I have a test but I'm stuck on how to shortern down this experiment. The experiment is about on to investigate the action of salivary amylase on starch. Can anyone help me out with a shortened down version of the "method" of this experiment please?

      Two test tubes.

      Fill both with starch solution.(Bread and water mixed together)

      Put amylase or saliva into one.

      Leave in bath of water at 37 degrees Celsius

      Test for reducing sugars by placing Benedict's solution in them both

      Benedicts test for a reducing sugar

      The tube that had amylase will turn brick red

      The other on won't
