Disaccharides, meaning "two sugars", are commonly found in nature as sucrose, lactose and maltose.  They are a type of carbohydrate which is typically high on the glycemic index, which means that, when digested, they cause a rapid rise in blood-glucose levels.


I am finding some information that there is a rare disorder for an intolerance of disaccharides at webMD. Other than that, I'm not finding any issues on it.  It says that any intolerance will show up within the first few years of life. When fructose is introduced into the diet.
