Transcript of Monosaccharides Presentation

By: Alec Wehse & Grant Gutstien Monosaccharide Molecule A class of sugar that cannot be broken down into a simpler form. Monosaccharides Subgroups Glucose
Galactose Subgroups Molecular Structure of Galactose A subgroup is a division of a group, which is generally more specific and more detailed used as energy for our bodies in the form of sugar
a source of fuel for metabolism Functions Most common form of the Monosaccharides molecule
One of three monosaccarides (fructose, glactose) absorbed directly into the blood stream during digestion
Formula - C(6)H(12)O(6)
A main energy source for organisms
Found in all foods, from fruits and vegetables to soda and other tasty delights Glucose Simplest form of a Carbohydrate/Sugar
Crystalline structure
Dissolves in water
Consists of Carbon (C), Hydrogen (H), and Oxygen (O) atoms
C6,H12,O6 Structure Converted into energy source for cells via Respiration Importance to Cells The End Hexose Pentose Fructose Galactose Also known as "Fruit Sugar"
Found in many plants
Pure Fructose is very sweet
Dissolves into water extremely easily
Made for commercial use mostly out of corn
Formula - C(6)H(12)O(6) A sugar less sweet then glucose
The determining molecular factor for blood type B
Formula - C(6)H(12)O(6)
