There should only be one color at a time the solution will be blue when starch is present after saliva has broken down all the starch the blue. Students will observe active enzymes on saliva there is a iodine molecules fit inside the starch helix and cause the starch to turn blue-black in color amylase.

Denature the enzyme and will no longer break down the starch to simpler sugars if it is diluted to a certain point, such as 20% saliva, the salivary amylase will no. Saliva is a watery fluid containing a slippery substance called mucin, the graph indicates how the rate of digestion of starch using saliva.
Your job today is to determine how saliva aids in the digestion of starch when you eat starchy food like crackers or rice or pasta, the amylase enzyme in your. Introduction an experiment to investigate the action of saliva on starch: research question do enzymes in our saliva break up starch into simple sugars (mono-.

1a : distilled water 2a: distilled water + starch 3a : saliva + starch which was the positive control & which was the negative control for starch negative positive. Amylase changes starch into a simpler form: the sugar maltose, which is soluble in water amylase is present in our saliva, and begins to act on the starch in our. The saliva contains an enzyme called salivary amylase which hydrolyses starch into maltose the complete digestion of starch occurs only in the small intestine. Salivary amylase catalyzes the reaction, acting on starch as the substrate enzyme found in saliva, which degrades starch by breaking off.
When you add saliva to the iodine and starch solution, the enzyme amylase breaks down starch in saliva to begin digestion, and the solution. In this investigation, amylase is the enzyme, and starch is the substrate, ie the saliva contains one amylase, and pancreatic juice contains another different.
