What is Chemical?
The chemical compound chemical is used to make a number of different substances including some that are used as food additives.
Quartz uses chemical formulas to describe some of these.
Chemical formula Chemical formula Name Description Amino acid A group of sugars with different chemical structures.
Amino acids are usually sugars that have been broken down into smaller molecules.
Amines are made from a combination of the amino acids.
Carbohydrate A unit of energy.
Carbohydrates are sugars that are usually stored in liquid form.
In some cases, sugars may be used as energy sources for plants, animals and microorganisms.
Aminos Acid Amino Acid Name Description Aspartic acid Aspartate, an important building block of proteins.
Glutamate A molecule that helps to break down proteins.
Proteins are made of a mixture of amino acids and other chemical building blocks.
Aminolipid A fatty acid that helps bind amino acids to proteins.
Polyphenols A group or group of substances that can be found in fruits and vegetables.
Polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are found in some fruits and veggies, are made up of two fatty acids and are thought to be beneficial for health.
Niacin A small, non-essential amino acid.
Some forms of vitamin A, also called alpha-tocopherol, are also made of Niacins.
Phospholipids (also called lipids) are proteins and other fatty acids found in the blood.
Phytosterols (also known as bio-active compounds) are sugars found in plants that have the ability to promote plant growth and health.
Vitamin B-12 B-6, an essential vitamin, is also found in many foods and supplements.
Vitamin A is found in animal and vegetable oils and is used in the production of paints, food coloring and in the manufacturing of cosmetics.
Vitamin D is an important component of skin, hair and nails.
It can also be found naturally in foods such as mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, lentils, peas and eggs.
Some vitamins and minerals also can be obtained from certain foods and some supplements.
The chemical formula chemical can also refer to the chemical compound in question.
Chemical name Chemical formula Description Aminolipoproteins (B-complex) Amino-o-polyunsaturated fats, including a variety of glycerol-modified polyunsaturated acids, such as docosahexaenoic acid, that are important for human health.
Polyketides (B1) Polyunsaturates that are found naturally and are not produced as a result of processing.
These include: beta-sitosterol, beta-glucan, gamma-hydroxybutyrate, lignans, lutein, polyphenols, polysorbates, polyethylene glycol and polyethylenimine.
Aminotransferase (A) Aminotocopherols, an enzyme that converts the fatty acids in plant foods into essential fatty acids.
The enzyme is important in many processes that produce essential fatty acid from fats.
Essential fatty acids are important in health, especially for cardiovascular health.
Fatty acids are produced by plants that contain a fatty acid group that is not present in humans.
They can also produce other substances such as polyunsaturals and polyphenol esters.
Essential Fatty Acids (AO) Fatty acid groups that are present in animal proteins.
These are important nutrients for many species of animals, such a cows liver, pork liver and beef liver.
Essential amino acids, the building blocks of protein, are needed to maintain the health of the body and help to fight disease.
A protein can be broken down to a number and type of molecules called amino acids or a group of amino acid molecules called a group.
The amino acids that make up a given molecule are arranged in a way that increases the energy density of the molecule and therefore increases the stability of the chemical.
Essential oils and emulsifiers that contain essential fatty oil are often used as a way to make certain compounds more stable and provide a safer alternative to food or water.
Essential fats (essential amino acids) are fats that are essential for human consumption.
Essential polyunsaturation intermediates, also known as sterols, are found mainly in plants, such citrus fruits and citrus oils.
These sterols help to stabilize certain fatty acids when used in foods.
Essential proteins are also important sources of essential fatty compounds that are also needed for health and disease prevention.
Essential micronutrients are molecules that help to maintain proper cellular processes.
Essential vitamins and other vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are also found naturally.
