  • BIOMOLECULES
    BIO3 Kawashima
  • Made by linking small subunits together…

  • Carbohydrates
    Also known as saccharides or sugars
    Mono/Disaccharides (simple sugars)
    Polysaccharides (complex sugars)
  • Carbohydrates in Food
  • Carbohydrates are used for energy storage and transport
  • Lipids
    Fats, oils, waxes, sterols and phospholipids fall under this category
    Made by linking fatty acid chains
  • Lipids are used for long term storage of energy
  • Proteins
    Also known as polypeptides
    Made by linking amino acids into a chain
    Most enzymes are proteins
  • Proteins are used for structure and mechanical processes. They participate in many biological processes.
