Carbohydrate

Saliva is mostly water, but it also contains enzymes such as alpha-amylase. Alpha-amylase, also called ptyalin or salivary amylase, begins the conversion of starch — a polysaccharide — into a disaccharide sugar known as maltose. Monosaccharides bond with each and every other to generate carbohydrates, referred to as either polysaccharides or oligosaccharides. If an oligosaccharide has just two monosaccharides composing it, it is referred to as a disaccharide. The mixture of extra than 20 monosaccharides creates a polysaccharide, a complex carbohydrate. D-Allulose, a low-calorie rare sugar with various physiological functions, is mainly developed through the isomerization of D-fructose by ketose...
