Abstract:
The purpose of this experiment was to determine the sugar composition of various brand name apple juices, unknown brand apple juices, and juice blends. Then use that information to calculate the percentage of each kind of juice in the blends and compare the name brand apple juices to the unknown brands of apple juice to see if they are labeled truthfully. I became interested in this idea while looking through a list of ideas provided by my science teacher. The sugar content interested me and since our town produces so many apples, I chose apple juice. I got the idea of truth in labeling and juice percentages while discussing this idea with my science teacher. The information gained from this experiment will help consumers to know if the manufacturers are labeling their products correctly.
