    When food is swallowed and broken down, it can be used directly or stored at various places of the body. If it is to be used immediately: • carbohydrate is turned to glucose and remains in the bloodstream • fat is converted to free fatty acids in the blood • protein exists as amino acids in the blood If it is to be stored: • Carbohydrates are converted to glycogen - stored in either the muscle or liver. Any excess carbohydrate is converted to adipose tissue (fat) and stored around the body • Fat is stored as triglycerides in the muscle (for use). The rest is stored as adipose tissue (fat) around the body • Protein - amino acids are used as the building blocks of muscle
