Question:

Which of the three sweeteners was metabolized most efficiently by the yeast cells? What evidence can you present to support your statement? To what do you contribute the results you present?

Yeast:

Yeast is unicellular, eukaryotic organisms that use certain sugars to carry out cellular respiration. Yeast is used to make bread, as well as to make different types of alcohol.

Answer and Explanation:

Yeast needs glucose to carry out cellular respiration. Whichever sweetener had glucose in it, would have been metabolized the most by yeast.

One of the byproducts of cellular respiration is carbon dioxide. The sweetener that has the most bubbles/foam has metabolized the most. The bubbles/foam are due to carbon dioxide.
