Sample text

People now had time to take on new tasks or to concentrate on perfecting their skills at specialized tasks. Some became skilled craftspeople, able to shape wood and metal for practical purposes. , people started to perfect the use of copper. This might not have happened if the people who discovered copper’s properties had been busy gathering food or tending farms to survive. The skills and trades developed by people who did not work on farms served two purposes in early societies. They provided a means of economic exchange to purchase food and clothing materials from farmers.

People in industrialized nations wanted to have consistent food quality. Plus, national restaurant chains wanted to provide the same taste to the meals served throughout the country. Manufacturers who used crop products needed uniform raw materials for the items they were producing. Stiff competition within and between countries made it necessary for manufacturers to have access to supplies of high-quality material. Clothing manufactures needed cotton fibers that had the same feel and dye-retention properties to ensure consistent quality for each garment made.

Only plants produce starch. The fibers found in many types of fabrics and in wood are also polysaccharides. Other carbohydrates act as natural glues and preservatives. Ice cream and many desserts contain these carbohydrates. They help delay spoiling and prevent foods from melting too quickly. Scientists are currently using agricultural biotechnology to grow plants that produce unique types of fibers made from polysaccharides. These fibers can be used to make durable building materials and biodegradable fabrics.
