Part 2: determination of the amount of red dye #40 in fruit punch gatorade using a standard curve 1 make solutions of the red dye #40 as described by table 2 below using a graduated 10-ml pipette (use. Personalized health review for gatorade thirst quencher, cool blue: 140 calories, nutrition grade (d), problematic ingredients, and more learn the good & bad for 250,000+ products alternatives. Blue dye causes a higher rate of tumors as well, specifically brain tumors other dye’s have been found to have both tumorous and toxic effects in other ways long story short, you want to avoid any food or drink that contains food dye, and gatorade is one of them. 3) determine the molar concentration of blue #1 dye in the sports drink show all work or highlight and label value on graph 4) determine the mass of blue #1 dye found in the drink.
The concentrations of red dye #40 in the powerade and blue dye #1 found in the gatorade were then found using a = ebc (a is absorbance, e is molar absorptitivity, b is pathlength of cuvette, c is concentration. And for good reason, as gatorade has dedicated a huge amount of time and money to producing a drink that’s not only optimal for proper because it’s the most widely used food dye as a result, it has also been the most tested red 40 is not as dangerous as other food colorings those to avoid include: blue 2, green 3, orange b, red 3. 2 the amount of light absorbed by the dye, a, can be used to determine the amount of dye in the sample by comparing the absorbance data of the sample with those of carefully prepared solutions of blue dye.
As of september, 2003, the fda is aware of 20 cases from the scientific literature or in fda post-marketing adverse event reports associating the use of blue dye in tube feedings with blue. Amount of blue dye in gatorade essay purpose: the purpose of this lab is to find the amount of blue dye #1 in the blueberry pomegranate gatorade procedure: we created dilutions using stock solution(10ml stock/0 ml water, 8ml/2ml, 6ml/4ml,4ml/6ml, 3ml/7ml, 2ml/8ml,1ml/9ml, 0ml/0ml. The g2 gatorade had the least amount of blue dye the last test i performed was with the bleach the results were that the solution with the most drops of bleach (four) stopped at 0611 ohms at 17 minutes when it became clear and colorless. Determining the concentration (molarity) of blue dye in gatorade introduction: we have seen how colors appear to our eyes as a result of white light falling on those colors and the colored object absorbing all of the colors from the white light except those of the color.
Since the creation of gatorade in 1987 sports drinks have become a staple of american athletics every major sports league, including the nba, nhl, mlb, nfl and nascar, are sponsored by and use of gatorade thirst quencher all sport and powerade, two other smaller market sports drinks, have limited sponsorships of smaller sports leagues including the ncaa. It’s the same dye that’s used in many blue foods — like blue m&m candies and “cool blue” flavored gatorade — which did mean there was one little side effect the rats that received the dye injections were temporarily dyed blue. Gatorade, distributed by the gatorade co, is a popular sport beverage which comes in a variety of flavors like glacier freeze, blueberry pomegranate, lemon-lime, tropical blend, orange and tropical mango considered below.
I did an experiment and used a calibration curve to find the concentration of allura red dye in a 10 ml gatorade - 90 ml h20 solution the concentration of dye in the solution turned out to be 130x10^-5 mol/l how could i find the amount of dye in undiluted gatorade. The g2 gatorade had the least amount of blue dye the last test i performed was with the bleach the results were that the solution with the most drops of bleach (four) stopped at 0611 ohms at 17. Red 40 food dye is the most abundant in the both powerade and gatorade i wonder how many of those who drink powerade clearly realize that these liquids are only imitations of fruit beverages and have nothing to do with the natural fruits. Pour-out the last standard solution, rinse your cuvette with di water, fill the cuvette about two thirds full with blue gatorade tm, and measure and record the absorbance of the gatorade tm 9 the amount of blue dye #1 ingested per serving of gatorade tm (in mg,. A color additive, as defined by regulation, is any dye, pigment, or other substance that can impart color to a food, drug, or cosmetic or to the human body fd&c blue no 1 or blue 1) lakes.
In this step you will measure the absorbance of the dye, blue #1 in the next part, you will repeat the calibration and the absorbance measurements for the red dye component of the drink the instructions on the packet are: dissolve the content of the package (6g) in 2l of water. Calculate the number of servings an 80 kg person would need to ingest to receive the ld50 of blue dye #1 the problem before this asked to calculate the amount of blue dye #1 ingested per serving of gatorade (given in mg, and given the molar mass of blue dye #1 is 79285 g/mol. Qualitative and quantitative analysis of food dyes step 4 - part 2: determining if the drink exceeds the adi guideline for blue #1 now that we have calculated the concentration of blue #1 dye in our drink to be 22 x 10-6 m, we can determine if this exceeds the acceptable daily intake (adi) of blue #1 set by the joint fao/who expert committee on food additives. Brilliant blue fcf (blue 1) is an organic compound classified as a triarylmethane dye and a blue azo dye, reflecting its chemical structure known under various commercial names, it is a colorant for foods and other substances.
Determine the amount of dye in your sports drink samples with unknown concentrations of blue 1 part 1: building and testing the spectrophotometer in this section, you will assemble a circuit on a breadboard. Gatorade is lab-tested to ensure it helps replenish the electrolytes lost in sweat and stimulates thirst so athletes will ingest an adequate amount of fluid and electrolytes to stay better well-hydrated compared to when using beverages without electrolytes, particularly sodium 1 2 3. Today, i visited mrs matthews' ap chemistry class, which was engaged in an investigation to determine the concentration of blue dye in gatorade the class was using vernier colorimeters, which fed data into analysis software on a laptop, to determine the relationship between the amount of dye and the absorption of light of a solution the availability of technology to quickly gather and. The gatorade prime 01 beverage contains the most sugar -- 23 g per 118 ml pouch -- for a total of 100 calories an 8-oz serving of gatorade recover 03 contains 6 g of sugar and a total of 60 calories.
Analysis of food dye in beverages (micro molar, μm) of the dye in the beverage and calculate the amount (mass) of dye in milligrams per liter of beverage the molar mass of fd&c blue 1 dye is 793 g/mole it also seems that the concentration of red dye in red gatorade is higher than the concentration of blue dye in blue gatorade. Gatoradecom states that colors in its drink only symbolize different flavors the fda notes that these are safe for human consumption because the least amount of dye is used in the coloring process brominated vegetable oil. A blue dye is likely to absorb in the yellow to red (that is why it doesn’t appear green to purple) and thus 686 nm is a good guess for its absorbance maximum.
