most common dietary disaccharide found in food products sucrose
chemical feature that distinguishes a saturated fatty acid from an unsaturated fatty acid hydrogen
nutrients that provide the body with it's primary source of fuel for heat and energy and are composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen charbohydrates
synthesized by the body in the liver cholesterol
risk factors: poor appetite, insuffecient intake to meet daily needs, depleted nutrition reserves, and form of metabolic stress malnutrition
digestion of milk yields these monosaccharides galactose and glucose
address the nutrient needs of most healthy population groups dietary reference intakes
the human body can rapidly break down these to yield energy quick energy foods

adds taste and flavor to food fat
provide higher quality protein when eaten together complementary proteins
example: calories from saturated fat voluntary information on food labels
