Question

what is endosperm


Solution

Endosperm is a nutritive tissue found in the seeds of nearly all the flowering plants after fertilization. The endosperm is normally formed in the process of double fertilization.

Although an endosperm can contain oil and protein, it mainly contains starch. The starch surrounds the embryo and provides it with nutrients. Due to the abundance of starch in the endosperm, it is a food source for humans and other animals.
