* Define nutrition as taking in of nutrients which are organic substances and mineral ions, containing raw materials or energy for growth and tissue repair, absorbing and assimilating them.
* List the chemical elements that make up:
• carbohydrates • fats • proteins
* Describe the synthesis of large molecules from smaller basic units, i.e.
• simple sugars to starch and glycogen • amino acids to proteins • fatty acids and glycerol to fats and oils
* Describe tests for:
• starch (iodine solution) • reducing sugars (Benedict’s solution) • protein (Biuret test) • fats (ethanol)
* List the principal sources of, and describe the importance of:
• carbohydrates • fats • proteins • vitamins (C and D only) • mineral ions (calcium and iron only)
• fibre (roughage) • water
• Describe the deficiency symptoms for:
• vitamins (C and D only) • mineral ions (calcium and iron only)
*Describe the use of microorganisms in the food industry, with reference to yoghurt and single cell protein
*Describe the uses, benefits and health hazards associated with food additives, including colourings.
6.3 :ANIMAL NUTRITION
The details instructions of PPT work is as follows.
Group 1. Small intestine and absorption of digested food (Structure of a villus). Processes like diffusion, active transport etc. involved in the process of absorption….?
Group 2. Where does the absorbed food go from villus and how...? (Details about blood vessel through which it passes and the organ that it leads to). Assimilation of digested food. (Glucose, Fats, Proteins)
Group 3. Storage of digested food.(Glucose,Fats, Proteins): in what form and in which part/organ of the body.
Group_4: Process of deamination. Role of liver in homeostasis.
The research work should include information related to topic specified.
Product can be in the form of PPT or video.
