comment How might I break down bread into glucose in a model of the human digestive system?
@Armatus: brewers say nothing about what type of amalyse they have have, and 'pancreatic amlyase enzyme' gives me lipase and protease mixed in. Although maybe that's not so bad?

How would I calculate how much time it would take for the reaction to happen?

Finally, how might I arrange for these? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

Also, that does not ship to canada, at all.

Also, I just realized that I have Lugol's iodine at home as a disinfectant.

@Armatus: Are you certain that that is the right thing? I note at least two varieties thereof. Which one do I want?

@Armatus: I was also told about Fehling's solution as a way to show the broken-down glucose, but that seems hard to make. Are there any simpler methods (I heard povidone-iodine reacts to starch)? Ones that actually do something, preferably, but time is far more important than rightness.

@Armatus: Wanted to ask you for more help, but wasn't sure how to, so I'm using this. I saw that amylase came in a couple of types and required some stuff to function (at the very least, calcium). What are the types that I need, what exactly do I need for them to react properly (and in what order, etc)? Also, do you by any chance know where I might order the correct amylases so that they would arrive in time to do it before this friday (8th of june)? I live near Montreal. Thanks a bunch for your help.

@mikemanne: I'm asking about how to break down starch into glucose. Before, I was asking about how to do something with the glucose obtained from this. The answer to one is apparently Amylase, while the answer to the other is some kind of combustion or something like that

@Armatus: I was told that amylase is only capable of starting the breakdown process, and the pancreatic and instestinal juices were responable for actually turning it into glucose. Is this true?

@Armatus: how much is ridiculously high?

@Armatus: Great. About how much time would it take, and what could I do with an glucose solution?

But, how would you burn dissolved glucose?
