Interpreting Benedict's Reagent Results In general, blue to blue-green or yellow-green is negative, yellowish to bright yellow is a moderate positive, and bright orange is a very strong positive.

Considering this, what reagent tests for starches and what does a positive test look like?
The test involves heating a solution of the sugar to be tested with Benedict's reagent and observing the colour change of blue to orange. Benedict's reagent will give a positive test result for glucose but not for starch.

Benedict's solution is used to test for simple sugars, such as glucose. It is a clear blue solution of sodium and copper salts. In the presence of simple sugars, the blue solution changes color to green, yellow, and brick-red, depending on the amount of sugar.
