What types of food supply carbohydrates lipids and proteins?
Carbohydrates lipids proteins and nucleic acids are?
They are the four classes of biological molecules that all contain carbon. Carbohydrates include starches, sugars, cellulose, simple, and complex carbohydrates. Lipids include fats/oils, steroids, and waxes, which are functions too. Proteins include meat, nuts, dairy, eggs, and legumes. Nucleic acids include DNA and RNA, which are the polymers of nucleic acids. Carbohydrates are a major source of food energy and stored energy. Lipids----->
Asked in Science
How are lipids like carboydrates?
Lipids and carbs are both sources of energy. They both have Carbon, Hydrogen, and Oxygen. The differences between them include the amount of atoms, (Carbs have a 2:1 ratio of Hydrogen to Oxygen, Lipids do not) the building blocks (Carbs are built from monosaccharides, Lipids are built from fatty acids and glycerol) And lastly, Carbs are our first source of energy, Lipids are secondary.
