Carbohydrates are oftenly referred to as "carbs"
An example of a carbohydrate monomer is glucose.
Example of a polymer for carbohydrates is starch or glycogen.
Carbohydrates are used to support plants and animals. Animals and plants store energy using carbohydrates.
Carbohydrates should be about 25% of your food consumption.
Carbohydrates relate to the food pyramid because without carbs we wouldn't have energy like we do. Carbs are in grains which are in the food pyramid.
Foods such as pasta, bread, wheat and oats supply carbohydrates to our body.
Wheat and whole grain
Oats and bread
Carbohydrates are glycogen and is located in the muscles and liver.
An example of a polymer for a protein is polypeptides.
Proteins do many things. They transport molecules and store molecules. They also help build and restore muscles.
Proteins are a apart of the food pyramid by being in the meats and beans category.
We should consume about 10 to 35 percent of our daily calorie intake should be from proteins.
Red meat, beans, seafood, chicken, beans, and eggs are foods that provide protein.
Red meat
Proteins are found all over our body. They are found in every organ like the brain. They are in our hairs, and our nails.
Some monomers of lipids are fatty acids and glycerol.
A polymer of a lipid is any oil or wax.
Lipids store energy, mobilization, and utilization protection of organs and insulate vitamins.
Lipids are in many groups of the food pyramid like the milk group such as milk and butter. They are also in the meats and beans group.
We should consume about 7 percent or less of lipids because they are oily feets.
Foods that supply lipids are milk, butter, meats, beans, and a lot of other things.
Lipids are found in all the cells throughout our body.
Monomer examples for nucleic acids are nucleotides.
Polymers for nucleic acids are DNA and RNA.
Nucleic acids do functions with genetic codes and heredity.
Nucleic acids do not show up on the food pyramid because they are strictly informational.
Nucleic acids come from DNA and RNA and form cells.
Nucleic acids encode, transmit, and express genetic information to all living things.
