[ [ Tagatose ] A monosaccharide found in small quantities in fruits, cacao and milk. Tagatose is a stereoisomer of fructose, following similar metabolic pathways. It lower sweetness and bitter aftertaste, compared to many other sugars. More ]
A [ Monosaccharide, simple sugar ] A carbohydrate molecule that cannot be further hydrolysed into simpler carbohydrates. Monosaccharides are the basic building blocks of all carbohydrates. They are sweet-tasting, water-soluable, white, crystalline solids with the typical formula of C6H12O6. Examples: glucose, fructose, galactose.

Tagatose is a stereoisomer of [ Fructose, D-fructose, fruit sugar ] A monosaccharide with the molecular formula C6H12O6, commonly found in fruit. Fructose functions biologically as a sweetener. By itself, it has no nutritional value except when converted into glucose or fat, where it may serve as a source of energy. Fructose, along with glucose and galactose, are the principle dietary carbohydrates that are directly More, following similar metabolic pathways. It lower sweetness and bitter aftertaste, compared to many other [ Sugar ] Any of the class of crystalline, water-soluble, short-chained (monosaccharide and disaccharide) carbohydrates. Sugars are typically sweet-tasting and include glucose, galactose, fructose, sucrose, lactose and maltose. More.
