Chloroplasts are disc shaped organelles that are stacked on top of each other.

They consist of stacks of thylakoids which are called grana.

Functions of Chloroplasts

1) Contains chlorophyl which gives the plant the ability to absorb energy from the sunlight

2) The energy absorbed is used to convert water plus CO2 into sugars that serve as a food source for the plant

3) Contains chlorophyl which gives the plant or algae color

The process of 1) and 2) is called photosynthesis


Chloroplast is the most important organelle because it is the provider for all plants cells. It provides food for the plant, and it also provides energy for the plant. Then when people or animals consumes the plants, we get energy from the sugars that are made from photosynthesis. We need oxygen to survive and plants send out oxygen.
