The reason why Ortho-Toluidine cannot be recommended for estimation of fructose is because o-Toluidine is fairly specific for aldosugar and fructose is a ketosugar.

Because like glucose it does not have aldehyde group it contain ketose group so o toluidine cannot be used for detection of fructose

What color does saliva turn into with the Benedict's solution?

Benedict's solution changes colors (blue to green to yellow to orange to red) in the presence of "reducing" sugars, which are not normally present in saliva. An interesting experiment, however, is testing table sugar with Benedict's solution. Table sugar is a glucose sugar joined to a fructose sugar, so they cannot react with the Benedict's solution and no color change occurs. Put table sugar in your mouth for a few moments, and then test the saliva. Now the Benedict's solution will react! (The reason: saliva has an enzyme, amylase, which breaks the glucose and fructose apart so that they can react to the Benedict's.)

Why you cannot filtrate a solution?

A filtrate is already in solution.


How do you change sucrose to glucose?

Sucrose is a disaccharide composed of glucose and fructose. A sucrase will hydrolyze sucrose into both constitute parts. You will be left with glucose and fructose, but you cannot directly transform sucrose to glucose.

Is High Fructose Corn Syrup a completely different chemical from regular fructose and if so what is the chemical formula?

High fructose corn syrup, HFCS, is a blend of two simple sugars, fructose and glucose. Both sugars have the same chemical formula, C6H12O6, but have unique chemical structures. "Regular" fructose, found in fruit or sucrose ( table sugar) has the same chemical formula. Sucrose, however, is a disaccharide of fructose and glucose which means that the fructose and glucose are chemically linked. Therefore, the ratio of the fructose to glucose in sucrose is precisely 50:50, 1:1, and the %fructose cannot exceed 50%. This is not the case with HFCS. Depending on the needs of the manufacturers the %fructose can range from 42% to 90%. Dairy and baked products use 42%, Pepsi and Coke use 55% fructose, and low-cal products may contain as much as 90% fructose.


What is known about the lines of the equations in a system of equation when the solution set is all real numbers?

No answer is possible. As soon as you have one valid line, all points that are not on that line cannot be part of the solution set. Therefore the solution set cannot be all real numbers.No answer is possible. As soon as you have one valid line, all points that are not on that line cannot be part of the solution set.

Which of the following cannot be digested by humans-sucrose maltose cellulose or fructose?

Cellulose cannot be digested by humans.Cellulosecellulosehumans cannot digest cellulosecelluloseCelluloseCellulose (aka Fiber) can not be digested by humans because, we don't have the bacteria needed to break down cellulose. Sucrose, Maltose, and Fructose are all disaccharides (carbohydrates/sugars) and are all able to be broken down to glucose in the body.


Explain how you could determine that brass is a solution and not a colloid or suspension?

Brass is a solution as it is homogenous in composition. In cannot be separated out. The particles are as one and do not hang where there could be spun out. Since they cannot be separated, brass is a solution.


How do you solve systems with no solutions?

By definition, you cannot. To solve means to find an answer or solution to a problem or a question. If there is no solution you cannot find one.
