Articles on Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates - one of a large group of chemical compounds, many of which are important sources of energy as foodstuffs.  There are three major groups of carbohydrates in food: sugars (sucrose, fructose, glucose, etc.); starches; and cellulose, which occurs in fresh and dried vegetables, cereals, and fruit.  Sugar and starches are easily digested and are an important energy source.  Cellulose is not converted by digestive juices but provides dietary fiber.
