Molecules in Food
Before preparing your response please watch this video, a crash course in biological molecules:
Consider reviewing the information about proteins, carbohydrates and fats in the OLI modules.
Pick a type of food that you enjoy. Before you start researching, state a hypothesis about the nutritional content of this food. Remember a hypothesis is an educated guess (and may be wrong), and a good hypothesis is specific.
Then summarize what you learned from your research. Include an image of at least one molecule found in this food and briefly describe that molecule in terms of the atoms it is made of and potentially the chemical bonds that keep the atoms together. Is this a beneficial molecule to consume? Explain why. Did your research support your hypothesis?
Your main response should be a minimum of 100 words
Food contains molecules made of small organic molecules known as biological macro-molecules that are necessary for life. These molecules are proteins, carbohydrates, nuclear acids and lipids. Proteins are made of amino acids and their functions are body-building and carrying out most of the body functions………………………
