- Starch: After hydrolysis change to dextrin, maltose and finally to glucose.
- Glycogen: Is main CHOs storage products in animal body and play important role in energy metabolism.
- Dextrin: Intermediate product of starch and glucose.
- Cellulose: Occurs in nearly pure form in cotton and less digested in non-ruminant but digested in ruminant by microorganism and end product is VFA like acetic propionic and butyric.
- Hemicelluloses: Are water insoluble and less resistance chemical agent than cellulose, they form leafy and woody structure of plant.
- Pectin: Found in peel of citrus, sugar beet pulp and used as jam making.
- Chitin: Major constituent of exoskeleton of insect.
- Inulin: Storage form of CHO and after hydrolysis produces fructose.
- Lignin: Closely associated with cellulose and is indigestible by animal.
