Catalyzation is the speeding up of a chemical reaction. Enzymes catalyze many substances. Enzymes can catalyze a chemical reaction up to one million times. Many diseases are caused by lack of catalyzation. One of these is Cystic Fibrosis, thick mucus clogs the pancreas not allowing the enzymes to leave the pancreas and catalyze foods. Huge amounts of enzymes can be found in almost every kind of food. There are over 1,500 different kinds of enzymes. This paper shows which fruit or vegetable catalyzes hydrogen peroxide most efficiently one hour. They enzyme which these fruits and vegetables contain that catalyses hydrogen peroxide is catalase.
