What is the prepositional phrase in the following sentence and what is the object of the preposition?
Fats release energy slowly, instead of the quick release from carbohydrates.
I know that instead of is the preposition. Is EVERYTHING behind it the prepositional phrase and if so, what is the object of the preposition?

You have two prepositional phrases.
You found the first: instead of the quick release.
The other phrase: from carbohydrates.

Thank you for the quick response! So, is release the object or quick release? For the second one, the object would obviously be carbohydrates.

Only "release." Adjectives are not objects of anything, and "quick" is an adjective.
