My name is Aidan Stoker. I’m 14 years old and live in Whitehorse, Yukon. I attend Grade 9 at Vanier Secondary School and my future goal is to be an engineer. I am a car fanatic, so leaning towards automotive engineering. I love to build things, and have earned the top award in our Territorial Bridge Building contest two years in a row. I enjoy mountain biking on our amazing Yukon trails and playing volleyball with my friends. I got the inspiration for my science fair project from my experience being active and playing sports, and needing a quick energy boost to keep my blood sugar levels up. Smoothies are a good snack and I wanted to know what ingredients would be best to keep my hypoglycemia under control. I would like to continue this research by expanding the type of foods tested and by looking deeper into how sugar levels affect the body in hypoglycemia and diabetes.

How Many Sugars are in Your Smoothie?
Région:Yukon Stikine
Ville:Whitehorse, YT
École:Vanier Catholic Secondary
Sommaire:Hypoglycemia and diabetes require you to control your blood sugar levels. In my project, I use digestive enzymes to convert sucrose and lactose into glucose, and then measure the sugar concentration in common smoothie ingredients. I want to find out what smoothie ingredients would be best for a quick glucose boost or for a longer lasting sugar release, to help control blood sugar levels.
