1. What do you learn from the above experiment?
This experiment involves learning about how sampling works. The key to any sample program is to obtain a representative sample. Sampling is the process by which organisms in small areas can be counted, or quantified, to estimate abundance over a larger area . The small areas, or samples, must be representative of the larger area for these estimates to be accurate. The more we sample, the more accurately we will be able to describe the larger area. For instance, a container may have many different types of beans. If we only sample it once, our sample may not get all of the kind of beans. But, if we sampled the beans many times, we would likely get a variety of beans in our sample. As more samples are added to the table, students will be able to see that many individual samples do not reflect the proportion of the container very well. But when all the samples are averaged together, the proportion of the beans in the container is evened out. Thus the more we sample, the more accurate our data. Quartering is a method used to reduce the number of sample without creating a systematic bias. The mixed beans are then divided into 4 portions; the two opposite portions then are transferred into two different containers. The same process is continued until an appropriate sample size remains. Analyses are made with respect to the sample left behind. There are some other things that could cause bias in our samples. For example, if a student accidentally got too few or too many when sampling the container. In all studies of food composition data, sampling of foods for analysis, and their subsequent preparation prior to analysis, are critical steps in the production of good quality and useful food composition data. Before any samples of food are purchased for a food composition program, a sampling plan should be…...

...2.1. Seed material The seeds of the two cultivars: Deglet Nour and Allig were directly isolated from 50 kg of waste date fruit having the same origin (National Institute of Arid Zone Degach, Tunisia) and collected at the ''Tamr stage'' (full ripeness). The seeds were soaked in water, washed to free them of any adhering date flesh, air-dried and then dried (12 h) at about 50 °C. Date seeds, from each variety, were separately milled in a heavy-duty grinder to pass 1-2 mm screens and then preserved at -20 °C until analyses. 2.2. Lipid extraction and preservation Lipid extraction was carried out with SER 148 Solvent Extractor (Velp Scientifica, Europe) equipped with six Soxhlet posts. About 15 g of powdered date seeds were used for oil extraction, with petroleum ether 40-60 °C (Merck), in each Soxhlet post (Besbes et al., 2004). The operational conditions were: • immersion time: 30 min with thimble immersed in boiling solvent, • washing time: 60 min of reflux washing. The relative percentage weight of lipids compared with weight of dried seeds was about 10.2% for Deglet Nour cultivar and about 12.7% for Allig cultivar (Besbes et al., 2004). The obtained seed oils were drained under a stream of nitrogen and then stored in a freezer (-20 °C) for subsequent analyses. 2.3.

Q Analysis

...replace the bars. The cross-section is shown in Fig. 4. Paper. Whatman no. 1 filter paper has been used almost exclusively. Whatman no. 42, while giving satisfactory separations of amino-acids, was too dense to permit a convenient rate of flow of solvent. In an attempt to separate larger quantities of amino-acids, thicker papers have been tried. Of these, Whatman 'Accelerator' paper (^, in. thick) gave satisfactory separations but was too fragile to withstand normal handling. Whatman 'Seed Testing' paper ( in. thick) was unsatisfactory as uniform flow of solvent could not be obtained. With most solvents the advancing front of liquid is coloured yellowish brown by material extracted from the paper. This contaminant can be partially removed by Soxhlet extraction with ethanol. Chromatographic washing is more effective. However, as the contaminant is so fast-running, relative to the amino-acids in most solvents (except phenol), it therefore does not interfere, and unextraoted paper has usually been used. EXPERIMENTAL The essentials of the apparatus consist of a filterpaper strip, the upper end of which is immersed in a trough containing the water-saturated solvent. The strip hangs in an airtight chamber in which is maintained an atmosphere saturated with water and solvent. The trough is provided with a bar over which the paper passes to prevent capillary siphoning between the outside of the trough and the paper. The apparatus is shown in Figs. 1-4. Chamber.

Determination of Crude Fat

...A : DETERMINATIOPI OF CRUDE FAT OF SUNFLOWER USING SOXHLET APPAATUS ABSTRACT 11e objective of this practical was to determine the crude fat content of sunflower through semi continuous method using Soxhlet apparatus where by 5g of the sample was weighed in to extraction thimble and placed in to the extraction chamber. Then heat was applied to the flask containing the extraction solvent (ethyl ether) and the solvent builds up in the extraction chamber for 5 to 10 minutes and completely surrounds the sample then siphons back to the boiling flask. Fat content is measured by weight loss ofthe sample or by weight of fat extracted. The crude fat content was found to be 449o. Maleki et at.. (2003) reported that the crude fat content of toog of sunflower is 50°ro which is slightly higher as compared to the result obtained. This may be due to inefóciency of Soxhlet methods to extract bound lipids. INTRODUCTION The tota) lipid content of a food is commonly determined by organic solvent extraction methods. The accuracy of these methods greatly depends on the solubility of the lipid in the solvent used and the ability to separate the lipids fom complexes with other macromolecules. The lipid content of a food determined by extraction with one solvent may be quite different from the content determined with another solvent of the different polarity. In addition to solvent extraction methods there are non-solvent wet extraction methods and......

The Analysis of Lipids Determination of Fat by Soxhlet Extraction

...Food Chemistry Laboratory report The analysis of Lipids Determination of fat by Soxhlet Extraction and Determination of fat content in milk by Gerber method Introduction Lipids are molecular organic compounds, composed largely of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen and are essential for cell growth. Lipids are non-soluble in water and combine with carbohydrates and proteins to form the majority of all plant and animal cells. Lipids are transported through the body attached to protein and are an important element of food. Lipids are the third major micronutrient required for the body after carbohydrates and protein. Lipids are also a medical term for ‘fat’ and though all fats are lipids, not all lipids are fats. Lipids have many roles within the body, one of its main duties is to transport, absorb and digest the fat soluble vitamins A,D,E and K. They provide the most energy to the body, are used for energy storage, cell membrane development, and they protect vital organs. Other major purposes are that they insulate layers under the skin, provide vitamins, essential nutrients and fatty acids in the body. Fatty acids cannot be made by the body and are therefore fat is essential in the diet. In many foods the lipid components add to flavor perception, texture, mouth feel and appearance. (Intro to food Nutrition handout, 15/02/11) It is important to remember that although fat is essential, the body only requires 30% of daily calorie intake to come from fat. Over consumption......
