The Carbohydrates are made up from the elements of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. These elements form the starch and sugar; the sugar is considered as the most abundant carbohydrates; these are classified as the monosaccharide, the disaccharide and the polysaccharide.
The monosaccharide is the simple sugars like the glucose and the fructose. The disaccharides are double-sugars like the sucrose and the lactose. The polysaccharides are the multiple sugars like the glycogen.
