Nutritional Knowledge

In the following pairs of words or phrases their are some major differences:

  • Soluble fibers and insoluble fibers - Soluble fibers form a gel with fluids in the gut and bowel and speed the digestive process. Insoluble fibers do not tend to bind with water and slow the digestive process.
  • Simple carbohydrates and complete carbohydrates - Simple carbohydrates contain fruit, milk, and refined sugars. Complex carbohydrates are made up of longer chains of carbon atoms.
  • Essential and non-essential amino acids - Essential amino acids must be provided in the diet. Non-essential amino acids are manufactured by the body.
  • Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and high-density lipoproteins (HDL) - Low-density lipoproteins are involved in the artery blocking process. High- density lipoproteins are involved in moving body lipids from places of storage to places of use.
  • Saturated fats and unsaturated fats - Saturated fats have no double bonds and are mostly solid at room temperature. Unsaturated fats have at least one carbon-carbon double bond and are liquid at room temperature.
