The Science of Cooking
How can science help us understand what happens during cooking?
In this project, we observed chemical changes in our kitchens and used our observations to ask scientific questions about why and how those changes happened.
We learned about the molecular makeup of food in terms of macronutrients.
Finally we learned about the Maillard reaction as just one example of the hundreds of reactions that happen during cooking. It’s involved in almost every type of cooking and responsible for hundreds of the flavour compounds we have in food.
