|LESSON 1: Basic Chemistry|
Carbohydrates are used for energy production and to build necessary cell components.
Five or six Carbons long formed into rings:
These can be linked together to form chains.
Polysaccharides (long chains like starch or cellulose)
Starch and Cellulose only differ in how the carbohydrates are linked together:
Do you know which you can digest? (hint: cellulose is common in plants)
