Coke testing for science With Jack

How we test I tested to see whether or not coke has glucose in it. To do this test we need Benedict's solution. WARNING! Benedict’s solution has copper in it which could cause your blood vessels to burst causing health problems
How we test Pt. 2 Get a test tube and put two centimeters of the Coke in. Then add ten drops of benedicts solution to the tube. Place in a beaker three quarters full of boiling hot water in. At the start it will most likely be blue because of the benedicts solution. If the substance contains glucose it will turn yellow.
Test Results TestObservationConclusionIs this the expected result GlucoseVery quickly the color changed to yellow This shows that the coke contains a lots of glucose Yes
