Shining a Light on a Toxic Issue

Abstract:This project was done in the interest of consumer health and safety. Three varieties of potatoes were exposed to light for 15 days to see if light exposure would increase glycoalkaloid levels. HPLC was used to measure the levels of these toxins before and after light exposure. High levels of glycoalkaloids can be harmful to humans.
