A white, crystalline sugar, C6H12O6, isomeric with dextrose, obtained by the decomposition of milk sugar, and also from certain gums. When oxidized it forms mucic acid. Called also lactose (though it is not lactose proper).
a six-carbon sugar.
Sugar found linked to glucose to form lactose, or milk sugar.
a simple sugar. It combines with glucose to form lactose in milk.
A monosaccharide occuring in both levo and dextro forms as a constituent of plant and animal oligosaccharides and polysaccharise. C 12.
a simple sugar found in lactose
Galactose is a further monosaccharide. The largest percentage is found in milk and dairy products, but it also occurs in the free state in fruits.
This makes up half the sugar that is contained in milk. Lactose is made up of galactose and glucose.
The type of sugar found in sugar beats. This type of sugar is harder for the small intestine to breakdown.
A sugar that is formed from the breakdown of lactose.
A carbohydrate (complex sugar) found in human milk and dairy products.
Galactose is abundant in dairy products, where it coexists with glucose in a disaccharide called lactose. The sugar also enhances wound healing, decreases inflammation, enhances cellular communication, and increases calcium absorption.
A type of sugar found in milk products and sugar beets. It is also made by the body. It is considered a nutritive sweetener because it has calories.
A type of sugar found in lactose, or milk sugar.
A monosaccharide and isomer of glucose. Less soluble and sweet than glucose, galactose usually appears in combination with other simple sugars rather than by itself.
a monosaccharide formed when lactose is hydrolyzed into glucose and galactose.
a monosaccharide derived from lactose
simple sugar that, together with glucose, makes up the milk sugar, lactose.
