A chemical reaction that builds up molecules by losing water molecules
Any class of sugars that are composed 2 monosaccharides. Serve as energy sources
multiple monosaccharides. Ex. Glycogen.
A simple sugar, for example fructose, glucose, or ribose. Is the simplest form of a carbohydrate, so it can't be broken down into simpler sugars by hydrolysis
