The two main ways to test for lipids in a sample substance is through the Sudan Red test and the Grease Spot test. Sudan Red is a dye that is lipid soluble. Therefore, when Sudan Red is added to a sample that contains lipids, the dye will color the lipids red. The Grease Spot test can also be used identify the presence of lipids in a sample. Lipids make unglazed paper, such as the outside of a paper bag, translucent.
