Unit 6 Chemistry
Acids and Bases
Please complete the following steps for your discussion post and response.
Acids and bases can be found in many places including the kitchen. Acids like lemon juice can make foods taste sour. Basic or alkaline foods such as peas or almonds may have more of a bland taste. As we’ve learned this week, an acid donates a proton and a base will accept a proton.
Choose three foods that you can find in your kitchen.
Describe how the food tastes, smells and looks.
Using this week’s resource, what is the pH of the various food you’ve consumed and how do they contribute to the acidity or alkalinity of the body-specifically discuss an organ or system in the body? You should include outside resources and cite them according to APA.
Are there specific conditions that might benefit by consuming more acidic foods or alkaline foods?
Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format.
