Carbohydrates

There are different types of carbohydrates. One way of classifying carbohydrates is dividing them into simple carbohydrates, complex carbohydrates, and sugar alcohols.

Simple carbohydrates contain either 1 sugar (monosaccharides) or 2 sugars (disaccharides) while complex carbohydrates contain more sugar units.

Monosaccharides

The 3 monosaccharides are: glucose, fructose and galactose. All are 6-carbon sugars (hexoses). However, fructose has a five member ring, while glucose and galactose have 6 member rings.

  • Glucose: product of photosynthesis, major source of energy in our bodies.
  • Fructose: commonly found in fruits and used commercially in many beverages.
  • Galactose: not normally found in nature alone, normally found in dissacharide lactose.
