Nutrition

  1. 1. NutritionNutrition healthhealth
  2. 2. Nutrition • is the process by which a person takes in and uses food. • Foods supply the building blocks and energy to maintain body mass. • The daily input of energy from food should equal the amount of energy a person uses daily.
  3. 3. • A Calorie (with an uppercase C) is the unit used to measure the energy content of foods. • A Calorie is equal to 1 kilocalorie, or 1000 calories (with a lowercase c). • A calorie is the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of 1 mL of water by 1ºC.
  4. 4. • The same mass of different foods does not always equal the same number of Calories. • For example: – one gram of carbohydrate or protein contains four Calories. – One gram of fat contains nine Calories
  5. 5. Carbohydrates • Cereal, pasta, potatoes, strawberries, and rice all contain a high proportion of carbohydrates
  6. 6. Carbohydrates • Sugars, such as glucose, fructose, and sucrose, are simple carbohydrates that are found in fruits, soda pop, and candy. • Complex carbohydrates are macromolecules such as starches, which are long chains of sugars. Foods such as those shown in the last photo have a high starch content, as do some vegetables.
  7. 7. Energy • Complex carbohydrates are broken down into simple sugars in the digestive tract. • Simple sugars are absorbed through villi in the small intestine into blood capillaries and circulated throughout the body to provide energy for cells. • Excess glucose is stored in the liver in the liver in the form of glycogen.
  8. 8. Dietary Fiber • Cellulose, sometimes called dietary fiber, is another complex carbohydrate found in plant foods. • Although humans cannot digest fiber, it is important because fiber helps keep food moving through the digestive tract and helps with the elimination of wastes. • Bran, whole-grain breads, and beans are good sources of fiber.
  9. 9. Fats In proper amounts, fats are an essential part of a healthful diet. They are the most concentrated energy source available to the body, and they are building blocks for the body. Fats also protect some internal organs and help maintain homeostasis by providing energy, and storing and transporting certain vitamins. However, not all fats are beneficial.
  10. 10. Fats • They are according to their chemical structure, saturated or unsaturated. • Meats, cheeses, and other dairy products are sources of saturated fats. • A diet high in saturated fats might result in high blood levels of cholesterol, which can lead to high blood pressure and other heart problems. • Plants are the main source of unsaturated fats. They are not associated with heart disease, although excessive consumption of any type of fat can lead to weight gain.
  11. 11. Can your recognize them? • A general rule is that saturated fats are solid and unsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature. • The margarine contains less saturated fat than butter. • Fats are digested in the small intestine and broken down into fatty acids and glycerol. • Fatty acids can be absorbed through the villi and circulated in the blood throughout the body.
  12. 12. Proteins • Cereal, pasta, potatoes, strawberries, and rice all contain a high proportion of carbohydrates
