Chloroplast! The Best Organelle!

Functions

Chloroplast is the ability for a plant to absorb energy from sunlight, in a process called photosynthesis. The immediate products of photosynthesis, NADPH and ATP. In plants, the products include a low-molecular-weight sugar (usually sucrose) that is exported to meet the metabolical needs of the many nonphotosynthetic cells of the organism. In the process of creating carbon dioxide the carbon-fixation reactions produces sucrose and other molecules in the leaves. From there the sucrose is exported to tissues creating more energy.




Why is it so important to us?

Chloroloplast is important to the cells because they help the plant to photosynthesize which allow the nutrients from the light and the soil to be taken up the plant. From there the cells use the nutirents to respire.
