Uh, you posted in the Food Science thread. However, for your keep the heat tips, try the Keep The Heat Wiki.

Bingo. Two weeks for a response isn't bad at all.

12/16/2011 - 12:35 Do event supervisors provide timepieces for use with the viscosity testing devices ("lab equipment"), or is the expectation that the timepiece is part of the viscosity tester and teams bring their own?

Teams should provide their own timing devices, although event supervisors should have a back up timing device available for a team that has forgotten theirs.

IL, nice! Come say hi to the other IL peeps at the IL 2012 topic. Anyways, Food Science...
Whatever's written in the rules is what will be on the test. We will have a much better idea after more Invitationals, but you should know about viscosity and how to determine the viscosity of some unknown with your own homemade viscosity testing device based on the standard curve you have to make with it. You will need to know the basics of the scientific method in order to run a bunch of the baking experiments. You should know basic chemistry of the different foodstuffs: lipids, proteins, etc, and what tests you do on them. More specifically, know the ingredients list. You should be prepared to calculate density or energy from food. Honestly, this one seems like it will be a steal with good preparation.
Anyone seen any cooking math yet? As-in, so-and-so teaspoons is equal to so-and-so tablespoons? This is a "measurable property" which, according to the rules, could show up. I'm hoping not, though.

I read that you need to bake and bring cupcakes to the event. Is this true? Also is there a difference between food science and food chemistry beacuse things I've read about food chemisty haven't been the same.

No, the cupcakes thing was in an early draft of the rules, but not in the final published rules. You should get a copy of them from your coach sine there is a lot of details explained that you'll need to know.

Thanks, but do you know if there is a difference between food science and food chemistry?

Wikipedia can help you with that:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_science
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_chemistry

Note you really need to look closely at the event rules, since they spell out the specifics you need to study.
