Amino acids
Amino acids are building block s of proteins. Each amino acid contains main three structural components. 1) Amino group 2) Carboxcilic group 3) R group

R can be hydrogen or any other functional group .in world there are around 182-200 found to be present in nature but we can find 20 aminoacids in humans.

Classification of aminoacids
We can classified aminoacids as into three catergaries. 1) Chemical 2)Nutritional 3)metabolic
Under chemical we can devide aminoacid as,
1) Fatty acids
2)Polarity of R
3)Aromatic herterocycle and alphatic
4)Neutral

Eg- glutamate, aspartate it devided aminoacid considering about the amino acid is heterocyclic,aromatic or aliphatic aromatic means it is phenyl or phenol ring eg-phenylanine(phenyl ring), tyrosine heterocyclic amino acid- aliphatic amino acid- deviding amino acid considering whether it is acidic,basic or neutral acidic it means if any amino acid having more than one group COOH. Eg-aspartic
Basic aminoacid-if any amino acid having more than one NH2 Eg-histidine, Arginine
Neutral amino acid-it means balanced like one acidic group and one basic group. Eg-glycine, Alanine
Deviding amino acid consider about branched or non branched

Monosaccharides
It is the simplest form of carbohydrates.only consist one sugar that cannot be hydrolyzed into smaller sugar.It has some basic morphological features .They are sweating taste,Soluble in water,They are crystal in nature.Monosaccharides devide into six types according to the number of carbon atom. Triose(3c) Tetrose(4c) Pentose(5c)

fatty acid is a long carbon chain and it capped by carboxyl group.fatty acids are like acetic acid but fatty acid does not have long carbo with glycerol lto form triglyceride.fatty acids gives a major role in metabolic fuel and it important to a n chain like acetic acid.if wewant to make normal fat we have to combine 3 fatty acids with glycerol lto form triglyceride.fatty acids gives a major role in metabolic fuel and it important to all the membrane and gene regulator. it used in industrial sites also. https://ediblesciencefaire.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/fatty-acid-structure1.png 2016 Structure of fatty acids
• Oleic acid
• Stearic acid
• Linoleic acid
These three fatty acids found in vinegar.fatty acids are like acetic acid but fatty acid does not have long carbon chain like acetic acid.in normal fat three fatty acid combine with glycerol to form triglyceride.Fatty acids are classified according to the number of double bonds. 1) Saturated (no double bond) 2) Unsaturated
• Monounsaturated(one double bond)
• Polyunsaturated(more than one double bond) 3) Acetylenic fatty
