Caption: Starch granules. Light micrograph of hydrolysed starch granules from a potato, Solanum tuberosum. Starch is a polysaccharide which occurs widely in plants as a carbohydrate energy reserve (the tubers of the potato plant are specially adapted for its storage). Consequently, starch is also important as an energy source for animals. On digestion it ultimately yields glucose. Magnification: x19 at 6x7cm size, x30 at 4x5"
