Cotton Candy Works Cited Marian Gardner The Chemistry of Cotton Candy! -Sucrose is a carbohydrate.
-Composed of (C12H22O11)
-Sucrose broken down is glucose combined with fructose, which are joined together by a condensation reaction. Crystalline and Amorphous solids Background -spun sugar was popular with the upper class dating back to the 1400s in Italy.
-Spun sugar was typically made as an edible table centerpiece accompanied by various fruits.
-There were spun sugar chefs called “sculptors,” who spent hours creating works of art from liquid sugar. How is it made? -Malleable
-an amorphous solid state
-Dissolves in water Machine Production -semi-automatic- used to produce the single serve helpings that are immediately sold at carnivals and amusement parks.
-Automated machine- produces large volumes of cotton candy for widespread distribution. step 1: Solid sugar is placed in to the hole of the spinner head.
Purpose: to converting solid sugar into fine filaments.
Step 2: The spinning extruder spins out the liquid sugar.
-The Liquid sugar cools and forms solid strands. -Step 3: Cardboard cone is used to pass around the sides of the collection pan.
-strands of cotton candy are pulled onto a conveyor belt and transferred into a sizing container. Flavors -Floss sugar is specially treated to promote the formation of fiber.
-dyes and flavoring are added to sugar to produce floss sugar.
-popular dyes include red dye #40, yellow dye #5 and #6, and blue dye #1
-popular flavors include; bubble gum, vanilla, strawberry, lemonade and watermelon and more. -Crystalline solids- have a regular repetitive pattern of atoms, molecules or ions.
-symmetrical shape, flat, smooth and plane faces where angles meet. Final product Step 4: In the sizing container, the bundle of the cotton candy is molded into a consistent shape.
-The cotton candy has the shape of a continuous block with a fixed height and width.
C6H12O6 + C6H12O6 => C12H22O11 Cotton candy was originally called “Fairy Floss.” -Modern machines that are made for commercial use can hold up to 3 pounds of sugar.
-The rotating bowl at the top spins at 3,450 revolutions per minute. -Future improvements will target cotton candy machines .
-These machines will be able to produce the candy more efficiently, economically and safely.
-new colors and flavors will also be introduced. https://sites.google.com/site/thechemistryofblank/the
