The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) defines carbohydrates as a class of organic compounds containing one carbonyl group (aldehyde or ketone) and at least two hydroxyl groups (-OH). Included in this class are substances derived from monosaccharides by reduction of the carbonyl group, by oxidation of at least one functional group at the end of the chain to a carboxylic acid or by replacement of one or more hydroxyl groups by an atom of hydrogen, an amino group, a thiol group or any similar atom.
Copper is a trace element essential for life (humans, plants, animals, and micro-organisms). The human body normally contains copper at a concentration of about 1.4 to 2.1 mg per kg. Copper is found in the liver, muscles and bones. Copper is carried in the bloodstream by means of a protein called ceruleoplasmin71. After copper is absorbed from the intestine, it is transported to the liver, bound to albumin. The metabolism and excretion of copper is controlled by the delivery of ceruleoplasmin to the liver, and the copper is excreted in the bile. At the cellular level, copper is present in a number of enzymes and proteins, including cytochrome c oxidase and certain superoxide dismutases (SOD). Copper is used for the biological transport of electrons, e.g. the “copper blue” proteins, azurine and plastocyanine. The name “copper blue” comes from their intense blue color due to an absorption band (around 600 nm) by ligand / metal charge transfer (LMCT). Many mollusks and some arthropods, such as horseshoe crab, use a copper-based pigment, hemocyanin, for oxygen transport, rather than hemoglobin, which has an iron nucleus, and their blood is therefore blue, and not red, when it is oxygenated72.
Fiber: Fiber is a substance of plant origin that is neither digested nor absorbed by our digestive tract. However, our intestinal flora, by breaking them down, allows us to absorb carbohydrates in a variable and partial way, hence their participation in our energy intake. They therefore have an effect on our transit, but also allow us to reduce our energy intake (the satiating effect of Fiber), lower our total cholesterol level and limit the increase in blood sugar levels after a meal.
Iron is a trace element and is one of the essential mineral salts found in food, but can be toxic in some forms. An iron deficiency is a source of anemia and can affect the cognitive and socio-emotional development of the childs brain or exacerbate the effects of certain intoxications (lead poisoning, for example).
B vitamins facilitate the conversion of food (carbohydrates) into energy (glucose). Niacin is helpful in the process of regulating stress hormones and improves blood circulation. These vitamins are water soluble and the body does not store them.
Potassium is an essential nutrient in the human diet.
Potassium in the form of the cation K+ is the major intracellular ion in the body. There is a concentration gradient in favor of the exit of the ion from the intracellular compartment to the extracellular compartment. This gradient is maintained by pumps located in the cell membranes, in particular the sodium-potassium pump is responsible for the existence of a negative resting potential present in all living cells.
Consuming sugar provides short-term chemical energy, but it is not a form of energy storage for the body. Some of the sugar consumed can be used immediately for energy if needed within minutes, some will be stored in the liver and muscles (as glycogen) for use within hours, and, if there is an excess, some will be converted to fat (triglycerides) for storage in fat cells.
As soon as we consume glucose, a component of sugar, insulin is secreted: its main role is to promote the use of glucose by all the cells in the body. Insulin also stimulates glycolysis, blocks lipolysis (use of stored fat) and promotes lipogenesis through an enzyme (triglyceride synthase), i.e. the production of fat in adipose tissue. Indeed, the hepatic glycogen stock is limited and the muscular glycogen can only be used by the muscles themselves.
This regulation of glucose, with a system of storage and release, provides a continuous supply of glucose to the brain. Although the brain accounts for only 2% of body weight, it uses 20% to 30% of the available glucose, which is its only source of energy (apart from ketone bodies synthesized during prolonged fasting).
Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin.
In the body, it exists as retinol, retinal, retinoic acid (tretinoin) and retinyl phosphate. These molecules are altered by oxygen in the air, alterations accelerated by light and heat.
Foods of animal origin (meat, dairy products and especially liver) contain retinol and retinol esters while plants mainly contain carotenes which are precursors of retinol. A beta-carotene molecule, by hydrolysis of the 15-15 ′ bond under the influence of a carotenoid mono-oxygenase (ββ-carotene 15,15 ′ mono-oxygenase), gives two molecules of vitamin A. On the other hand, the other two carotenes (alpha and gamma) only give rise to a single vitamin A molecule.
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin covering a set of eight organic molecules, four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. The most biologically active form is α-tocopherol, the most abundant in the diet being γ-tocopherol. These molecules are present in large quantities in vegetable oils. They act, along with vitamin C and glutathione, essentially as antioxidants against reactive oxygen derivatives produced in particular by the oxidation of fatty acids.
