The fructose & glucose monomers in a sucrose polymer are hosted together utilizing a glycosidic bond. A type of covalent bond that joins a carbohydprice (sugar) molecule to one more group, which have the right to be an additional carbohydprice (or not).

The bond calls for "energy" in the develop of an H20 molecule unprefer the sugar compounds found in high fructose corn syrup. The energy in the glycosidic bond in between glucose and also fructose in sucrose is around 7 kcal/mol.

This is among the significant differences between eating "real" sugar and artificial "lab derived" sweeteners such as HFCS.
