Quick Question

 

How could I determine the presence of carbohydrates, proteins, pectin, and lipids and fats by using the enzymes amylase, pepsin, pectinase, and lipase?

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

simply measure the amounts of these substances after introducing them to the respective enzymes.

Couple the enzyme reaction with another that produces something that a spectro will pick up.

yeah... like skye said, use a photospectrometer and some substance or another that will react with the molecules you listed.
