Food protein b216620d55f834ae91f9877de74fecd29ed507c7361f30b7be5d898baff8f1ef

Protein is a macro nutrient composed of amino acids that is necessary for the proper growth and function of the human body. While the body can manufacture several amino acids required for protein production, a set of essential amino acids needs to be obtained from animal and/or vegetable protein sources. Animal protein sources contain the complete set of essential amino acids, while all the essential amino acids can be obtained by eating a wide variety of plant foods.

Carbohydrates are one of the main types of nutrients. They are the most important source of energy for your body. Your digestive system changes carbohydrates into glucose (blood sugar). Your body uses this sugar for energy for your cells, tissues and organs. It stores any extra sugar in your liver and muscles for when it is needed.

Food fat 44cb1e2f8a4ef14dc6d60693264e6608e51e8e508abbb08f0134e54c92e5ae11

Fat is a major source of energy in the diet. Dietary fat contains nine calories per gram, which is more than twice the number provided by carbohydrates or protein. Due to its high caloric content, the chance of becoming obese increases with a high intake of fat. Some fat is essential for proper body function. Fat fills adipose tissue that helps to insulate the body. Fat helps the body absorb certain vitamins.

Food fibre 93cfe22fa218e68521f3dd0c537cd0e4dc94e163f6b0c7183bf79072bd928084

Dietary fibre, also known as roughage or bulk, includes all parts of plant foods that your body can't digest or absorb. Unlike other food components, such as fats, proteins or carbohydrates (which your body breaks down and absorbs) fibre isn't digested by your body. Instead, it passes relatively intact through your stomach, small intestine, colon and out of your body. It pushes through our digestive system, absorbing water along the way and easing bowel movements.

Superfoods are a special category of foods found in nature. By definition they are calorie sparse and nutrient dense meaning they pack a lot of punch for their weight as far as goodness goes. They are superior sources of anti-oxidants and essential nutrients, nutrients we need but cannot make ourselves.
