Students will learn how maltodextrin, a food additive made from starch, can convert liquid fat molecules into a dried, solid state powder. They will also learn that this, now converted fat, is more easily digestible as a solid starch and can be used to flavor foods much like oil!

Cooking with Chemistry
Grades: 5th - 8th Grade

Turn down the heat and get ready to create edible molecular masterpieces using the power of chemistry. In Cooking with Chemistry, students will investigate the physical and chemical transformations of ingredients that occur during cooking. Through the making of molecular gastronomic recipes such as oil powders, foams, fluid gels, and infusions, students will learn how different substances and chemicals added at the right time during the cooking process can change the molecular structure of solids and liquids, transforming them into completely new and interesting (and edible!) treats.
