Overview of Macronutrients & Micronutrients

The majority of the diet is made up of macronutrients, which also provide energy and many necessary nutrients. The macronutrients are water, microminerals, proteins (including necessary amino acids), fats (including essential fatty acids), and carbohydrates. Proteins, carbs, and fats can all be used as energy sources; lipids have a caloric value of 9 kcal/g (37.8 kJ/g), while proteins and carbohydrates have a caloric value of 4 kcal/g (16.8 kJ/g). Micronutrients include trace minerals and vitamins, which are needed in very small levels.
