What is the difference between starch and cellulose? How does this difference affect digestion?
Here, we are going to differentiate between starch and cellulose.
Step1: Starch and cellulose both are complex carbohydrates.
|Starch is the energy storage medium for Plant.Starch is composed of two polysaccharides such as amylose and amylopectin. Amylose and amylopectin are made up of glucose units bonded together via glycosidic linkages.||Cellulose is the structural unit of plants.Cellulose consists of glucose units bonded together via -glycosidic linkages.|
