 Project description:
In this project you test different foods or fruits for their vitamin C content. Materials that you need for your experiments can be found locally or purchased online. You may complete your experiments in one day, however there are hundreds of other vitamin C related projects that you may choose to do and they take more than a few days. Among other vitamin C related questions that can be the subject of a Science Project are:
  1. How does the amount of vitamin C change when fruits get older?
  2. How does the storage temperature affect the amount of vitamin C in fruits?
  3. How does cooking affect the vitamin C in foods?
