There are probably some typos in the pharagraph on caloric content:
4 calories/gram (~16.8 kj/g) ... (roughly 3.2 cal/g or 13 kg/g)
-->
4 kilo calories/gram (~16.8 kJ/g) ... (roughly 3.2 kcal/g or 13 kJ/g)

In the US, we tend to use calories and kcal interchangeably even though it's technically inaccurate; I've changed it so overseas readers do'nt think I'm completely illiterate. Thanks for the kg catch.

Small error: Galactose isn't a disaccharide. Galactose is a monosacharide that is often not found on its own at least in foodstuff. Most commonly, it is bonded with a glucose monomer to form Lactose, which is the disacharride that you probably meant to mention. I'm guessing that you already know this and that it was just a quick typo.

Good article.

Do you want us to point out grammatical typos?

Yup, I knew that. Typing too quickly, thanks for the catch.

I don't know how nit picky you care to be, but the double 'daily' in this sentence reads weird.

Quote:
The body has a daily requirement for somewhere around 60 nutrients on a daily basis for normal functioning.
Quote:
Most tissues in the body can use glucose for fuel and, quite in fact, most will use glucose if it is available (they will switch to using fats or ketones if glucose is not available in sufficient amounts).
Quote:
Please note that this is mainly a division of convenience but it tends to be useful practically so I’ll stick with it.

Quote:
Pretty much any vegetable you care to name (with the handful of exceptions mentioned next) will fall into this category of carbohydrates and it’s often stated that you can eat these types of carbohyrates ‘without limit’ due to their generally low caloric content

Got 'em, thank you. and I do dislike the use of the same word twice like that. Fixed it.

"there is no real storage form of protein unless you count the relatively amount floating around in the bloodstream"

Missing a "small" up there between "relatively" and "amount".
