Butter Butters Better
Room 19's food science. This week we learnt what fat is. Butter is a saturated fat. We also investigated how the digestive system works to break down food and absorb fats, carbohydrates and protein. We made butter from cream and a few pinches of salt. Most students were quite surprised at how the cream separated into buttermilk and a solid mass which we know as butter.
