Stuff about carbohydrates

We humans are able to digest starch, but we lack the enzymes required to digest cellulose.
Carbohydrates are compounds containing carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.
The best known dietary carbohydrates are sugars, like glucose and starch.
Single sugars have ringed structures containing either 4 or 5 carbon atoms and one oxygen atom.
Single sugars are called monosaccharides.
Multiple sugars are called polysaccharides
Starch is the primary carbohydrate component of several foods such as potatoes.
Cellulose is the primary fibrous component in the cell walls of plants.
Glycogen is the polysaccharide that is stored in our bodies for energy.
