Food Science B: Students will answer questions on food chemistry with a focus on fermentation and pickling. In addition, participants will build a salinometer/hydrometer capable of measuring salt compositions between 1-10% (mass/volume).

I don't have any experience with Food Science, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any good places to start resource-wise?
I make horrible science puns, but only periodically 8-)

(I would help if I had done this event before, but alas, I haven't)
I'm a little confused on whether a calorimeter is needed this year. On the sheet from Soinc.org it doesn't state whether one is needed or not and the wiki page includes how to make one (probably from previous years but I don't exactly know.)

It looks like participants will be building a salinometer, not a calorimeter this year.

Thank You! I'm helping some seventh graders who haven't done Science Olympiad and I didn't want to steer them wrong.
