    Hi everyone, I wanted to conduct chemical tests with Iodine to test for saturated fats. I have been researching this quite a bit but not found the answer yet. Can Iodine bought online be used as a substitute for 'industrial strength' iodine used in the lab to test for sat fats? Any help would be useful..

    If you buy from a reputable source and you know for sure that it is what you need, I don't see why not. If you buy cheaply though then you could be end up buying something that isn't the same and won't give you accurate results.

    Thanks, I think I'll need to do some research on which supplier to buy it from then!
