Biological Molecules are things like carbohydrates, proteins and lipids. They are generally long and complex

Carbohydrates are made of simple sugars

  • Carbohydrate molecules contain the elements carbon, oxygen and hydrogen
  • Starch and glycogen are large, complex carbohydrates, which are made up of many smaller units (e.g. glucose or maltose molecules) joined together in a long chain
  • Maltose (and other simple sugars e.g. glucose) go to Starch

Proteins are made up of amino acids:

  • Proteins are made up of long chains of amino acids
