본 문서는 2019년 제가 작성한 final 점수 A 받은 Extended Essay이며, 선택 과목은 Biology이고 주제는 “Quantitative Determination of Resistant Starch Formation in Different Cooling Times of Jasponica Oryza Sativa Using Dehydration – Gravimetric Method” 입니다.
There has been an increasing number of teenagers in Korea, including myself, who are becoming obsessed with losing weight due to misrepresentation of ideal body images in the television. Due to this overwhelming desire to lose weight, these teenagers promote the idea of fasting as a means to consume less calories, refraining from having a well-balanced diet, which as a result, causes some form of malnutrition.

As I researched, I realized that there was scientific background to the myth and was compelled to investigate how different cooling times of Jasponica Oryza sativa “common rice variant” would affect its digestibility and hence, result in less calories absorbed and a lower glycemic index.
I thought that this was very significant especially to me since I live in a country where rice is a staple food eaten at least two times a day. Moreover, this research would give people a more concrete relationship between calories and cooling times of rice, and would also assist the dietician sector, helping them achieve a direct approach to help those people who want to cut down on their calories.
