I think its called a glycoprotein
Some examples could be glycogen, cellulose, or starch.
A starch in plants, glycogen in animals.
that is an aldehyde or ketone and that has more than one hydroxyl group
Carbohydrates are polar molecules with a lot of -OH functional groups attached to it. This makes them capable of hydrogen bonding, which is one trait of polar protic compounds… (molecules that are polar AND can participate in hydrogen bonding). The oxygen of an -OH from one sugar can attract the hydrogen of another sugar, and thus two hydrogen bonding interactions occur for every pair of -OH molecules. These are most soluble in water or other polar protic solvents. Ethers are aprotic solvents (lacking hydrogens), yet it still has some ability to dissolve partially polar molecules. It has an oxygen to attract other hydrogen molecules with, but it does not share a hydrogen at the same time. Therefore, carbohydrates will most likely undergo two bonding interactions with each other via rather than bond to the oxygen molecule of an ether. As a result, you will see a clumping of sugar in ether.
Polysaccharides such as: starch, glycogen and cellulose
In the chemical formula there should be twice the amount of hydrogen atoms than oxygen atoms and the formula should contain Carbon. Example: C6H12O6 Sources: Exploring Cr…eation with Biology 2nd edition
Most large insoluble molecules get broken down in the digestive system to small (simpler) soluble molecules.
sugar Sugars are carbohydrates and Fatty acids are fats.
a insoluble molecule is when the food is to big to digest so it turns into a small soluble molecule.
Glycogen, starch, and cellulose are all large carbohydrate molecules.
The simplest molecules of carbohydrates are called monosaccharides or simple sugars. Glucose and fructose are example of monosaccharides. Other types of carbohydrates are …disaccharides and polysaccharides.
