FOS2001 Exam 2 study guide  

what is melting point?

Exam will cover material presented in modules 6 -10. All that was presented in the lectures and  in the required reading may be included on the exam. All topics are directly from the lectures and  the readings, it means that I am not using any other resources to create the questions for the  exams.  

Exam is time limited to 50 minutes to answer 50 multiple choice and true/false questions.  Questions for your individual exam are pulled from a larger bank of questions.  You have to be registered with ProctorU to take the exam. The exam is password protected and  your proctor will enter it in order to start the test.  

The topics below should help you to prepare for the exam.  

Know definition/description, elements, possible limitations and characteristics of following  terms. If there is an abbreviation know the full name of that abbreviation. It was a problem for  some of you on exam 1:

1. Lipid chemical composition, classifications, general structure, omega designation,  “short hand” representation of lipids, food sources, saturation, and functions.

• Composition  

• substances that are insoluble in water, but soluble in organic solvents such as ether,  acetone, and chloroform

• contains hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon (like carbs)  

• the shorter the chain, the more it likes water  

• fat, no double bonds, solid  

• oil, bends at double bonds, liquid  

• Classifications  

• fatty acids  

• triglycerides

2. How properties of fatty acids change with structure of lipids

• Shorter the chain, the more it likes water  

• Full of hydrogen atoms & no double bonds (saturated) is solid

• Missing hydrogen atoms & double bonds (unsaturated) is liquid

• Hydrogenation  

• hydrogen atoms added to unsaturated fatty acid under intense heat so that there are  fewer double bonds  

• makes product into a solid and less susceptible to spoiling  

• when hydrogen is added back, it changes the arrangement of bonds  

• cis: fatty acids that remained unsaturated  

• trans: fatty acids that converted to saturated  

• Partially vs. Fully hydrogenated  

• Partially hydrogenated oils, or PHO, some cis- fatty acids are converted to  trans- before all double bonds are removed  

• fully hydrogenated oils remove all double bonds from all fatty acids  

• hydrogenated oils in cooking don’t break down under high temperatures  • Trans Fatty Acid  

• unhealthy fatty acid produced through addition of hydrogen atoms to double bonds  of fatty acids, which causes the molecule to assume an unnatural shape

3. Oxidation of lipids

• Beta Oxidation  

• In this pathway, enzymes break the carbon chains that make up fatty acids to  release two carbon fragments and convert them to acetyl CoA, which can join with  other substances and begin the Krebs cycle

• final pathway used to make ATP  

• (lecture) Lipid Oxidation  

• properties depend on structure  

• hydrogenation  

• tends to make solid and more stable to oxidation  

• degree of unsaturation  

• double bonds tend to make liquid and more susceptible to oxidation

• unsaturated fats oxidize faster  

• antioxidants are used to prevent lipid oxidation  

4. Essential fatty acids

• cannot be made by body and only provided through diet

• if not consumed, body will break down muscle tissue  

• Nonessential amino acids  

• can be made in body by transferring the amine group, or nitrogen, from an  essential amino acid to another compound containing a carbon, an acid  group, and an R group  

• made by reusing the nitrogen group of essential amino acids and from  proteins that have been broken down  

• called transamination  

• Conditionally essential amino acid  

• nonessential amino acids that under certain circumstances cannot be made  into sufficient quantity by the body and therefore must be consumed in the  diet

• Stomach  

• J-shaped sac mixes food into chyme

• substance results after stomach mixes and liquifies food  

• can hold about 4L when full  

• pepsin breaks down protein  

• stomach produces gastric juice  

• HCI, hydrochloric acid, is a substance secreted in stomach to denature  protein  

• digestion in stomach is converting food to chyme  

• mucus protects stomach from acid  

• as chyme reaches end of stomach, must pass through pyloric sphincter into small  intestine  

• churns and mixes food, secretes gastric juice, HCI, and protein digesting enzymes  • Small Intestine  

• most absorption occurs here  

• 3 parts  

• duodenum (top)  

• jejunum (middle)  

• most absorption occurs  

• ileum (bottom)  

• end of it is beginning of colon

• Gallbladder  

• stores bile and releases it into the small intestine when needed  

• bile helps with fat digestion  

9. General metabolic pathway of carbohydrate, protein and fat in the call (lectures) • Carbohydrate Metabolic Path

• Glucose (end product of digestion), in ATP can be made in cytosol with enough  oxygen energy is produced, in mitochondria converted to Acetyl Coa > Citric Acid  Cycle > pushed into electron transport chain> converted from ADP to ATP • Fat Metabolic Path  

• Fatty Acid (end product of digestion), in mitochondria converted to Acetyl Coa >  Citric Acid Cycle > pushed into elctron transport chain> converted from ADP to  ATP

• Protein Metabolic Path  

• Amino Acid (end product of digestion), in mitochondria converted to Acetyl Coa >  Citric Acid Cycle > pushed into elctron transport chain> converted from ADP to  ATP

10. Absorption of macronutrients in the small and large intestine

• Carbohydrates, fats, and proteins need to be digested to smaller units  before possibility of absorption  

• water, a micronutrient, does not need to be broken down before absorption  • Carbs  

• mouth (amylase) —> stomach (no more breakdown) —> small intestine —>  single sugars ready for absorption  

• in small intestine

• broken down by enzyme released from pancreas, pancreatic  

amylase, into smaller chains of glucose  

• several enzymes from lining of small intestine continue breakdown

• Fats  

• mouth (lipase) —> small intestine (most) —> emulsification (broken down to  fatty acids and glycerol) —> make triglycerides —> enter vessels of lymphatic  system (first formed into chylomicrons that enable fat to travel in watery blood) — > triglycerides broken down and used for energy or stored  

• in small intestine  

• smaller molecules rejoin to make triglycerides  

• after fat absorbed, bile continues through intestine and most reabsorbed in  ileum or bound by fiber and excreted  

• Protein  

• digestion begins in stomach —> pepsin breaks down protein —> small intestine  —> amino acids absorbed and travel to liver —> in liver, future depends how  many carbs consumed —> absorbed amino acids can make proteins or glucose, or  amino acid pool  

• in small intestine  

• enzymes secreted by pancreas break them into smaller units

• enzymes from wall of small intestine act on peptides (break off one amino  acid at a time, then they travel in blood to liver)  

• Water  

• most absorbed in small intestine  

• small amount absorbed in large intestine  

• rest secreted in feces  

• absorbed by following sodium and other nutrients, like glucose, across wall of  intestine

11. BMI and its effect on health

• caused by positive energy balance (eating more than burning)  

• BMI 30 or greater  

• caused by genetics and behavior and environment  

13. Exercise and fuel for physical activity

• Fats, carbohydrates, and a small amount of protein can be used for fuel during aerobic  exercise

• Physical fitness incorporates cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength, muscular  endurance, and flexibility

• benefits  

• increases HDL, lowers resting heart rate, lowers blood pressure, manage stress,  improves sleep, decreases depression and anxiety, self-esteem, maintain muscle,  overall feeling of well-being

• helps prevent  

• heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis  

• types  

• strength training to build muscle and raise metabolism  

• aerobic to burn calories  

14. Nutrient requirements of a professional athlete and physically active person  

• Professional Athlete  

• Carbs: 6-12 grams/kg/day (depends on duration)  

• Protein: 1.2-1.7 grams/kg/day (depends on sport)  

• Fat: remainder of kcal needs  

• eat meal including carbs 1-4 hours before workout  

• consume easy digestible carb during workout (sports drink)  

• eat meal within hour of workout  

• 0.5 grams/pound of carb  

• 15-25 grams of whey protein or 2 cups of milk  

• Physically Active  

• Carbs: 5-7 grams/kg/day (2.5-3 grams/lbs/day)  

• Protein: 0.8-1.0 grams/kg/day (0.4-0.5 grams/lbs/day)  

• Fat: remainder of kcal needs  

• eat meal of carbs no more than 4 hours before workout  

• eat meal within hour of workout of carbs and protein  

• workouts longer than 45 min, consume easily-digestible carb during it (sports  drink)  

15. Body glucose needs and production during physical activity • carbs benefit performance and maintain levels  

16. Fluid requirements during physical activity

• during workout drink 4-6 cups an hour  

• water if <1 hour, sports drink if >1 hour

17. Characteristics of fad diets

• 95% fail  

• doesn't involve permanent lifestyle changes  

• doesn’t allow for real-life situations  

• low calorie  

• doesn’t mention the need for increased physical activity  

• water loss not permanent or desirable  

• muscle loss not desirable  

• fasting/skipping meals  

• metabolism drops  

• leads to overeating  

18. Vitamin A and beta-carotene

• contributes to disease resistance, skin health, gene regulation, digestive tract, and bone  growth  

• occurs in retinol, retinal, and retinoic acid  

• Beta-carotene is an antioxidant found in plants. This plant pigment is converted into  vitamin A if needed in the small intestine, and thus it is referred to as a precursor to  vitamin A. The units in which beta-caro- tene and other precursors such as carotenoids  are measured are called retinol activity equivalents or RAE. About 12 µg of beta carotene will produce 1 µg of retinol; thus, you need 12 times as much beta-carotene to  get the same benefit as retinol.  

• Found in animal tissue, dairy, fortification, carotenoids, and supplements  • Retinol is the most active form, stored in liver  

• crucial to vision (Bitot's spot)
