  • Lipids and Fats
  • -Lipids are any group of organic compounds that are greasy to the touch, insoluble in water, The most abundant lipids are fats.-Like carbohydrates, lipids are composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms.The building blocks of fat are fatty acids and Glycerol.-There are many types of fatty acids, which means there are many kinds of fats-The glycerol portion of each fat molecule is the same.
  • Topic of the day:Lipids & Fat molecules
  • Fatty Acids
  • Saturated fatty acid: each carbon binds as many hydrogen atoms as many hydrogen atoms as possible and this is saturated with themUnsaturated fatty acid: have one or more double bonds between carbon atoms.
  • Fatty Acids
  • -A glycerol molecule combines with three fatty acid molecules to form a single fat molecule-Fat molecules have only saturated fatty acids called saturated fats-Those that have unsaturated fatty acids are called unsaturated fats
  • These are some yummy examples of proteins
  • Proteins
  • What are proteins?
  • The human body has more than 200,000 types of proteins
  • Proteins have a variety of different functions
  • Proteins
  • Antibody proteins: recognize and destroy substances foreign to the body
  • Hemoglobin and myoglobin are proteins that carry oxygen in the blood and muscles
  • Proteins contain nitrogen and are composed of many bonded amino acid molecules
  • Contractile proteins such as actin and myosin provide muscle action
