Disaccharides Quiz

Disaccharides are a type of carbohydrates which are formed by the joining of two simple sugars like glucose. The joining of simple sugars happens when there is an elimination of water from the functional group. The common types of disaccharides have twelve carbon atoms and are generally soluble in water. The breaking down of double sugars are helped by their enzymes.
