Hooked on Science: Jam Ph Indicator

(41NBC/WMGT) — Science Guy Jason Lindsey shows us this week another use for strawberry jam besides eating!

Strawberry jam is a natural Ph indicator which means you can use it to tell if something acidic or basic, to do this mix warm water and strawberry jam together in a container and presto! You have a homemade Ph indicator.

If you want to test it out be sure to wear safety glasses/goggles, gloves and have your parents around to help you! If the mixture turns purple you’ve added a base to it and if the mixture turns red you’ve added an acid to it!
