Figure 1: Representative graph of the 1s (625 µL of 1.44 mg/mL diluted in 375µL), 2s (486 µL of 1.44 mg/mL diluted in 514 µL), 3s (347 µL of 1.44 mg/mL diluted in 653µL), 4s (243 µL of 1.44 mg/mL diluted in 757µL), 5s (139 µL of 1.44 mg/mL diluted in 861µL), and 6s (0µL of 1.44 mg/mL diluted in 1000µL) and their corresponding absorbance at 610 nm in the spectrophotometer for each micro tube.
The graph creates a standard curve for the relationship between the protein concentration and its absorbance at 610nm. The independent variables are in the X-axis, and the dependent variables are in the Y-axis. The trend has a R2 value of 0.9812
Table 1: The representative data of the actual protein concentration in A-Rice, B-Cow’s milk, and C-Protein shake respectively and their theoretical protein concentration contents labeled on each of the product with the related percentage error.
