Okay Curezoners. I think i'm on to something with this test.
1. I'm making the experiment way too complicated. Just take a glass of distilled water and add a starch of your choice. Flour works too! It's not as pure as cornstarch but it's still pretty starchy. I really should bone up on my chemistry.
You're simply making the starch mixture to use for your testing.
2. Take two or three or more identical coffee mugs that are white on inside.
For my experiment I used
JCrow 5% and
JCrow 2% and my
75mcg/drop potassium iodine.
3 of my crème brulee cups which are white on the inside and have an identical fill line on the inside.
I filled all three cups with the corn starch mixture, at the fill line. If you're using coffee mugs, just pour 1/2 cup of mixture into each mug.
I then put one drop of the 5% in the first cup, one drop of 2% in second, and one drop of 75mcg in the third.
The 5% percent turned a dark purple, the 2% a much lighter purple and the 75mcgs. gave no reaction at all.
I put the cups under a bright light source to see and observed the color differences.
I noted that the 75mcg/drop cup showed no reaction, however I remember experiencing heavy detox when I tried this level in the beginning. So, the Iodine is present, it's just not enough show up with the starch experiment.
I think this is an easy test to perform and I think it would indeed be possible to compare gradations of lugols.
Further testing is required to see if the naked eye could see slight gradations, ie, differences between 5%, 4.75%, 4.5%, 4% . . .
However, initial observations are that it would be pretty easy to see slight gradation differences, based on the color difference between 5% and 2%.
I should describe the end result a bit better. It looks like a dirty paint brush cup. Like someone washed out a brush with purple paint. The more often the paint brush was washed out, the darker the color water.
