There are several reviews on the chemistry, biochemistry and uses of carbohydrates in general. The scope of the present review is restricted essentially to research done on the plant carbohydrates in India and information available in research journals. Emphasis is placed on the various classes of plant carbohydrates, viz free sugars, water-soluble polysaccharides, starch, pectins, gums and mucilages, hemicelluloses and cellulose. Different aspects of work on these polymers have been covered in a broad sense, such as chemistry and structure, biochemistry, nutrition and processing-modification-application.
