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.
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.
Vitamin B9, another name for folic acid (folate, folacin or vitamin M, pteroyl-L-glutamic acid, pteroyl-L-glutamate and pteroylmonoglutamic acid), is a water soluble vitamin.
Folic acid is the metabolic precursor of a coenzyme, tetrahydrofolate (FH4 or THF4), involved in particular in the synthesis of nucleic bases, purines and pyrimidines, constituting the nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) of the genetic material. THF is also involved in the synthesis of amino acids such as methionine, histidine and serine.
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).
Magnesium is involved in more than 400 biochemical reactions. It is particularly involved in the osmotic transport of glucose, the insulin transport of glucose and in all stages of energy production. A major mechanism of biochemical activation, consisting of adding a phosphate group to a protein, magnesium is a cofactor of phosphorylation. It is also an actor in homeostasis, a mechanism allowing the conservation of an internal balance (cell, heart rate, urination, digestion, body temperature, etc.) and an essential cofactor in the polymerization of nucleic acids.
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.
Inorganic phosphorus in the form of the phosphate PO3−4 is required for all known forms of life. Phosphorus plays a major role in the structural framework of DNA and RNA. Living cells use phosphate to transport cellular energy with adenosine triphosphate (ATP), necessary for every cellular process that uses energy. ATP is also important for phosphorylation, a key regulatory event in cells. Phospholipids are the main structural components of all cellular membranes. Calcium phosphate salts assist in stiffening bones. Biochemists commonly use the abbreviation “Pi” to refer to inorganic phosphate.
Proteins are assemblages of amino acids, 9 of which are essential for the body. There are two sources of protein sources: proteins of animal origin and proteins of plant origin.Proteins are essential for all functions of the body because they provide amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of all body tissues, including muscle and body tissues. Eating protein at every meal can also make you feel full for a longer period of time.
Whether you eat protein to lose fat, gain muscle, or both, it is important to look for lean protein, or protein that contains very little fat. Some fats are important (see next section), but the type of fat is very important, so not all fat-rich proteins are equally healthy. Examples of lean proteins include skinless chicken, tuna, tilapia, extra-lean ground beef, egg whites, Greek yogurt and low-fat or fat-free cottage cheese, and tofu.
When reading a label, be sure to check the protein-to-fat ratio. Lean protein has much more protein than fat (for example, egg whites are fat-free but have a lot of protein).
Thiamine or vitamin B1 (or aneurine) is a metabolic precursor of thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP), a coenzyme essential to certain decarboxylases. In animals, thiamine is a water-soluble vitamin from the family of B vitamins that they must find in their diet. On the other hand, it is synthesized by bacteria, plants and fungi. It is essential for the transformation of carbohydrates into energy by the Krebs cycle and is necessary for the proper functioning of the nervous system and muscles. It is in fact essential for the transformation of pyruvate produced by glycolysis and toxic for the nervous system.
In humans, a dietary vitamin B1 deficiency causes beriberi and can also cause Gayet-Wernicke encephalopathy.
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin represented by three main forms: pyridoxine, pyridoxal, and pyridoxamine.
Present in a wide variety of plant and animal foods, it is necessary for proper cell function, particularly the nervous system and skin.
Isolated B6 deficiency is rare. It is most often associated with multiple vitamin deficiencies, particularly the other B vitamins. These deficiencies are observed in particular in chronic alcoholics.
In very small quantities, zinc in assimilable form is an important trace element, essential to plant and animal organisms. When properly assimilated by organisms, it activates enzymes, influences growth, and promotes biochemical reactions and controls in the lung surfaces. The human body contains 2 g to 4 g. Daily requirements can be estimated at a minimum of 15 mg for a normal man, and up to twice that amount for a nursing woman.
Zinc is contained in a variety of yeasts (up to 100 mg per kilogram), in red beef (in the range of 50 mg to 120 mg per kilogram), and in a variety of commercial foods.
The bioavailability of zinc in food is not known. The bioavailability of zinc from plants is sometimes questioned. While it is true that plants contain antinutrients that decrease zinc absorption, zinc deficiency does not appear to be more common among vegans.
