“Breaking Down”

Alternate Experiment: Make some pudding with a spoon, eat some out of the bowl, leave some pudding on the spoon. Saliva has moved from your mouth into the bowl of pudding. Leave the remaining pudding in the refrigerator overnight. The next day you will notice some of the pudding has broken down due to the enzymes in your saliva. The broken down pudding looks very watery compared to the pudding your spoon did not touch. [p. 41]
