Carbon, hydrogen and oxygen are the only elements that make up sugars.
carbohydrates(as simple sugars) and lipids
A Disaccharide, or double sugar, is comprised of two monosaccharides (simple sugars) through a dehydration reaction. So a monomer for any disaccharide can be any basic isomerism of any monosaccharide such as: glucose, fructose, or galactose.
Also known as sucrose, sugar is made up of 22 hydrogen atoms, 11 oxygen atoms and 12 carbon atoms in each molecule. Sucrose is made up of two simple sugars, fructose and glucose. Sugar is a carbohydrate that has 45 atoms.Under a microscope, a molecule of sugar looks like a cube. When cooking, acid is added to the sugar to break the cube apart. The acid breaks the sucrose down into fructose and glucose.Sugar exists in most plants. However, it is harvested primarily from sugarcane. Sugarcane is harvested all around the world with Brazil as the world's largest producer of sugar.exploratorium.edu
Two. Sucrose is composed of the simple sugars glucose and fructose chemically bonded.
Sucrose, which is table sugar, is a disaccharide composed of the monosaccharides glucose and fructose chemically combined. Maltose is a disaccharide composed of two glucose monosaccharides chemically combined.
Two sugars connected together are called disaccharides.
glucose, maltose, fructose
Glucose + Glucose = 2 Glucose units Maltose is a disaccharide
water and a disaccharide
Carbohydrate type molecules can be divided into two chief sub-classifications. These are simple and complex carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates are sugars, and complex can be healthy starches as found in vegetables.
Carbon, Oxygen and Hydrogen.
Carbohydrates can be defined as any of a group of multiple simple sugars. In more scientific terms, it could be said that carbohydrates are polymers of simple sugars, which are monomers. Another name for "carbohydrate" is a polysaccharide, making sugars a monosaccharide. Disaccharides are groups of two simple sugars. Common carbohydrates are cellulose, starch, glucose, etc.
