Transcript of Amyloplasts

Amyloplasts are apart of plastids specifically a type of leucoplast. Amyloplasts are specialized organelles that occur in the cytoplasm of only plant cells.
What is Amyloplast?
The Beehive
Amylopasts are contained in...
Potatoes
Wheat
Maize (Corn)
Rice
Cassava (Tropical Fruit)
And many other staple foods
Plants
Amyloplasts are responsible for storing glucose. However, glucose is soluble so the glucose converts into starch (which is insoluble). The starch turns into sugar when the plant needs energy.
The Function
Bees take nectar from flowers and store them into their beehive which transforms into honey for the bees to eat and for us too eat.
