For Kids! Experiment: Gluey, Gooey Gluten…in Our Food? (Digital Download pdf)


You may have seen products in the store that have the words “gluten-free” on them but don’t know what they mean. Or maybe you know more about this issue because someone you know has problems when they eat gluten. This experiment is from Introduction to Food Science for Kids! and explains what gluten is by making a loaf of bread with a little, and one with a lot.  The Edible Knowledge explains how it happened, and whats going on.

The text is geared towards children as young as 6, but children that young will need supervision.  High temperatures are used, please be careful to prevent burns.
