Disaccharide: two simple sugars forming a sugar compound.

Overview

Table sugar (sucrose) is an example of a disaccharide sugar molecule composed of 50% glucose and 50% fructose.

Glucose is a usable energy source; fructose is not a usable source of energy.

Complex carbohydrates (like beans) are complex molecules of carbohydrate energy requiring extensive digestion to convert them to glucose for use by the liver and cells.

Avoid consumption of disaccharide sugars and keep ingestion of carbohydrates to a minimum. Monosaccharide sugars such as: agave, fruit juices, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup and fruit should be AVOIDED!
