Question

Which of the following is a non-reducing sugar?


Your Answer
A
Starch                  
Correct Answer
B
Sucrose
Your Answer
C
Maltose                 
Your Answer
D
Galactose

Solution

The correct option is C Sucrose

Non-reducing sugars do not have an OH group attached to the anomeric carbon so they cannot reduce other compounds. All monosaccharides such as glucose are reducing sugars. A disaccharide can be a reducing sugar or a non-reducing sugar. Maltose and lactose are reducing sugars, while sucrose is a non-reducing sugar.
