DETERMINATION OF SUGAR CONTENT, ALCOHOLIC CONTENT, VITAMIN A CONTENT ON SOFT DRINK SUCH AS AMSTEL MAL, GUINNESS MALT AND MALTINA AND ITS EFFECT IN HUMAN CONSUMPTION
Malt is non-alcoholic drinks are popular in many countries. These drink are prepared in a manner. Similar to beer, but without fermentation and generally produced using barely malt. In this study, the malt, drinks that was used in this work is Guinness Malt, Amstel malt and maltina. Sugar content and vitamin A content was found to be in the three malt samples but there was no alcoholic content found to be in any of the malt drinks. Also this study also contains the effect of sugar contents, alcoholic content and vitamin A content in human body after consumption.
Malt also called young beer, children’s beer or 9wheat soda) is type of soft soda, is a type of soft drink. It is a carbonated malt, beverage, meaning it is brewed from barely hops and water much like beer, corn and carmel color may also be added. However, malt is non-alcoholic, and is consumed in the same way as soda or cola in its orginigal (carbonated form, and to some extent, iced ten in non-carbonated form (Sarton, 2005)
In other words, malt is actually a beer that has not been fermented. It is similar in colour to shout (dark brown) but it very sweet, generally described as tasting like molasses. Unlike beer, ice is often added to malt when consumed. A popular way lation Americans sometime drink malt is by mixing it with condensed or evaporates milk (Taylor, 2005).
Vitamin A is a micronutrient or vitamin which can be found in many fuits vegetables, egg, whole milk, butter, fortified margarine, meat and oily salt water fish. It can also be made in the laboratory, vitamin A is used for treating vitamin A deficiency. It also used to reduce complication of such as malaria, measles and diarrhea.
Simply carbohydrate sugar refers to monoand disaccharides, complex carbohydrate refers to polysaccharides such as starch. Common diasaccharodes are sucrose (glucose + fructose )found in sugar cane, sugar beet, honey, and corn symp, lactose (glucose + glucose) found in milk products and maltose (glucose + glucose from malt. (Auto, 2002)
Alcoholic is a psychoactive drug that has a depressant effect. A high blood alcohol content is usually considered to be legal drunkeenncess because it reduces attention and show reaction speed.
Alcoholic beverage that have a lower alcoholic content (beer and wine) are product by fomentation of sugar or starch containing plant material. (Simpson et al al 2008)
1.1OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
To determine the sugar content, alcoholic content, vitamin A content in malt drink.
To determine effer of sugar content alcoholic content. Vitamin a content in human body.
To determine if the quantity in malt drink is adequate for human body per day
1.2STATEMENT OF PROBLME
The rate at which sugar disease occur rate of addition of alcoholic and vitamin A deficiency is high. This promoted to determine wether in take of malt help cause in crease in the body.
1.3SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY.
This research work is meant to determine the sugar content, vitamin A content, alcoholic content in three different brands of malt drink.
1.4LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
This project work is limited to the determination of vitamin A content, sugar content, alcoholic content. Here are also other constrains in this project work, which included the addition of alcoholic and vitamin A deficiency is high. Also as a student, I experienced poor financial standing to do all that I was required to do for this work.
