After being boiled, can bile still emulsify lipids? watch


    That's interesting. I don't think it's meant to happen. It's only a matter of a few seconds, but we found the same thing. There's been a lot of discussion about it such as perhaps the unboiled hadn't dissolved properly or boiling caused a change in the structure of the bile salts that affected the acidity, but no-one really understands it.

    There is no reason for it to be quicker. Take an average of a number of experiments, and it should work out approx. the same.

    Just one last question. How many stopwatches did you use with this experiment? Using just one seems to take a long time, but five each seems rather confusing! Thanks for the help Atheist with faith. I'm a believer with doubt (sometimes!)
