ABSTRACT
A definition of the term "sucrose" is presented. It refers to a dissacharide, C12H22O11, which is obtained from sugar cane, sugar beet, and other sources. In the intestine, isucrose is hydrolyzed to glucose and fructose by sucrase. The monosaccharides, that are resulted from the digestion of sucrose, are absorbed by the small intestine and carried to the liver, where they may be converted to glycogen and stored.
