Question and answer
define carbohydrates and the basic function of sugars and starches in the body
A carbohydrate is a macronutrient contributing to energy needs of cells in the body. [ Carbohydrates are made by plants in the form of sugars, starches and celluloses, which are further classified as simple or complex according to the size of the carbohydrate molecule. Complex carbohydrates are made of long chains of simple carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates are one or two saccharides (units of
sugar). Simple carbohydrates are also used to replenish glucose and glycogen in the body after exercise, starvation or high amounts of stress. Complex carbohydrates are found mainly in fruits and vegetables or whole grains, which contain nutrients and phytochemicals that contribute to optimal health.
