For this discussion question, pick out one of your favorite pre-packaged foods and take a picture of the nutrition label and ingredient list. You may also be able to find these online.
In your post, tell us first why this is one of your favorite foods (Is it convenience? Comfort food? Your secret vice?). Then, detail ONE of the following for your classmates:
1. List any pure elements that are found in the food. Check this against a periodic table to ensure that you are correctly identifying these.
2. Identify any ionic compounds that are found in the food. Remember that these will typically be salts of some kind, but may not be immediately obvious from the name. As an example, remember that monosodium glutamate (NaC5H8O4N) is an example of an ionic compound from your module. (If you have started Activity 1, this will help you with this).
3. Identify any vitamins that are present in the food. Provide your classmates with the chemical formula for those vitamins (or even the structure if you find it online). Do those vitamins have names other than just the letter “Vitamin __”?
4. Were there any ingredients that you couldn’t identify or recognize? Do a quick Internet search and provide your classmates with some information about that ingredient. Be sure to cite your source!
In your responses to your classmates, pick ONE of the above questions that he or she didn’t answer in the original post and answer it for him/her.
