b) Lipids and carbohydrates

c) None – vitamins are not a source of energy.

d) Beri Beri

e) Iron is essential for the formation of haemoglobin in red blood cells. It is also part of the structure of some proteins.

Carbohydrates: 230g x 17 kJ/g = 3910 kJ

Protein: approximately 50 g x 17 kJ/g = 850 kJ
