Categories of nutrients
Nutrients are usually oftentimes divided into following groups:
Carbohydrates (including fibers)
Sometimes nutirents are divided into macronutrients and micronutrients. The division is simply that macronutrients are compounds that we consume in large quantities and micronutrients are compounds that we consume in small quantities.
Carbohydrates, proteins and fats would be macronutrients and vitamins and minerals would be micronutirents.
