Vitamin B6 has been used by women taking steroid contraceptive pills, and it has been used in treatment of such ailments as premenstrual syndrome (PMS) but this is not recommended without valid blood or urine tests to show low B6 levels. Biotin Biotin is reported to be a coenzyme in the synthesis of aspartic acid, which plays a part in adeaminase system and in other processes involving the fixation of carbon dioxide. Deficiency of this compound is unusual, although it can be tied up by a substance in raw egg whites caIled aviden and the deficiency has been demonstrated in feeding studies with mice.
The nutritional~value of glycogen in foods is minimal and animal foods are not considered a good source of carbohydrates.

These correspond 26 Elementary Food Science to "left" and "right" in the open chain presentation. The locations of these hydroxyl groups at carbon-l in the pyranoses and carbon-2 in the furanoses will be very important in the digestibility of polysaccharides that are formed from monosaccharides. More complex sugars may be formed as two or three molecules of monosaccharides join together. When this happens, water molecules are formed: glucose + glucose " CHpH CH 2 0H H~. +) 20H ~ maltose + water ~~H ~CH1~H H~O OH OH OH OH glucose + 1\0 OH Moltos~ This explains why monosaccharides are shown by the formula CSH120 S and disaccharides (made from two monosaccharide units) are shown as C12H22011.
