What is the one type of non-sugar which is insoluble? With examples
Polysaccharides are made up of many sugars, these consist of Starch, Cellulose, Glycogen and Chitin.
2 of 9
What's the name of 3, 4, 5, 6 Carbon sugars and what are they?
3 Carbon Sugars are TRIOSE sugars. 4 Carbon Sugars are TETROSE sugars. 5 Carbon Sugars are PENTOSE sugars. 6 Carbon Sugars are Hexose Sugars. These are all monosaccharides as they're the simplest kind of sugar, they also dissolve.
