Which of the following options correctly pairs a polymer and its monomer?DNA, nucleotidesNUCLEIC ACIDS are not listed on food labels because they are found in equal abundance
inevery kind of food and do not add significantly to the calorie content or nutritional valueoffood.LIPIDS (FATS), CARBOHYDRATES, and PROTEINS are listed on food labels because theyimpactthe nutritional quality of the food being consumed.TOTAL FAT (TRIGLYCERIDES) content is given first, followed by the individual content ofspecifickinds of fats nutritionists watch. Of most concerns is SATURATED FAT and TRANSFAT. Sometimes, the label will also report the amount of UNSATURATED FAT, even breakingthenumbers down further into polyunsaturated and monounsaturated categories. If your fat ofinterest is not listed, you can typically deduce its amount by simply subtracting the listedcategory amounts from the total amount.TOTAL FAT (g) = SATURATED FAT (g) + TRANS FAT (g) + UNSATURATED FAT (g)Note on Trans Fat: The FDA allows manufacturers to report 0 grams of Trans Fat for anyamountless than 0.5 grams per serving. So that cupcake that has "0 grams trans fat" mayactually have0.499 grams of trans fat. If you eat two servings, which is not uncommon, youactually consume1 gram of trans fat from a product labeled "0 grams trans fat!" The only way toknow whetherthe product truly contains 0 grams of trans fat is to read the label's ingredient list.If partiallyhydrogenated oil is listed, there IS trans fat in the product, no matter what the numbersays.PHOSPHOLIPID content is not listed for the same reason nucleic acids are omitted.Although CHOLESTEROL is a kind of fat, it is given its own listing because of its importanceindiet and its presence in milligram quantities (1000 fold less than triglycerides).TOTAL CARBOHYDRATE content is also given first, followed by DIETARY FIBER(CELLULOSE) andSUGARS (simple carbohydrates like monosaccharides and disaccharides).It is not listed as theamount of complex carbohydrates like starch and glycogen, but you candeduce that by simplearithmetic.TOTAL CARBS (g) = SIMPLE CARBS (g) + COMPLEX CARBS (g)= SIMPLE CARBS (g) + STARCH/GLYCOGEN (g) + CELLULOSE (g)= Quickly absorbed carbs + Slowly absorbed carbs + Non-absorbed carbs
