Carb structure and function, examples of carbs, fat structure, and function, unifying characteristics of fats, Hydrolysis vs. dehydration synthesis
Carbohydrates come in two forms, sugar, and complex carbohydrates.
Sugars - has six carbon molecules Disaccaride - two monosaccarides Think of a disaccaride as two box cars linked together
While starch, or complex carbohydrates is more of a train. Dozens of box cars linked together.
The analogy of the freight train relates to the length of the molecules in the protein. Think of the smaller boxcars on the protein train as amino acids. Naturally, our bodies produce them, but not all of them at least eight of them we have to digest with our diet.
