Carbohydrate is a biological molecule consisting of carbon (C), hydrogen (H) and oxygen (O) atoms, that is synonymous with ‘saccharide’ (sugar), a group that includes sugars, starch, and cellulose. The word saccharide comes from the Greek word sákkharon, meaning “sugar”. Carbohydrates are the most abundant biomolecules in nature.
Biomolecules are chemical compounds that naturally occur in living organisms. They primarily contain carbon and hydrogen atoms, some with nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and sulfur. A wide range of biomolecules exists. Major types are carbohydrates, nucleic acids, lipids, and peptides/proteins.
2Laboratoire d’Ingenierie des Biomolecules, ENSAIA—Université de Lorraine, Vandoeuvre, France In this study, emulsifying properties of Angum gum were improved by covalent bonding with β-lactoglobulin (BLG). Angum gum is a natural gum exudate from mountain almond trees (Amygdalus scoparia Spach).
Ingredients: whole almonds, cashews, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, cacao nibs, coconut flakes. This granola can be made in big batches and stored for use during the week, but it takes just a couple of minutes to throw it together so can be made fresh each morning.
