Disaccharide Carbohydrates

Disaccharide Carbohydrates

Disaccharides are one of the four chemical groupings of carbohydrates (monosaccharides, disaccharides, oligosaccharides, and polysaccharides). A disaccharide (also called a double sugar) is the sugar formed when two monosaccharides (simple sugars; glucose, fructose, and galactose) are joined by glycosidic linkage. Like monosaccharides, disaccharides are soluble in water. Three common examples of disaccharides are sucrose (table sugar), lactose, and maltose.
