Analyzing Digestion
Part 4
a. Does amylase break down starch?
Amylase actually does break down starch or “digests” it into sugar. It's called the disaccharide maltose.

Part 1: Quick Lab
Part 2: Analyzing Data
1- Predict: Usually when you eat extra calories and don't exercise as much, that food turns into fat and you start to gain weight. So, my guess is Ryan will gain weight with less exercise and more calories.
b. do acidic conditions deactivate amylase?
Yes, since amylase helps break down starch and creates sugar, acidic conditions would stop that from happening, confusing the body and messing it up. The body would be filled with starch and less sugar.
