City:North York, ON
School:Bloor C.I.
Abstract:This experiment was conducted to determine if various factors such as temperature, storage time and exposure to oxygen affect the amount of Vitamin C in two different types of juices. Upon analyzing the rate at which Vitamin C in apple and orange juice degrades in situ, it was concluded that Vitamin C content is lost in both the juices, within a week if left uncovered.
