** '''Maltose''' (<ref> Dictionary Reference: [http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/maltose maltose] </ref> or <ref> Cambridge dictionary: [http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/maltose maltose] </ref> ), also known as '''maltobiose''' or '''malt sugar''', is a [[disaccharide]] formed from two units of [[glucose]] joined with an α(1→4) [[glycosidic bond|bond]]. In the [[isomer]] [[isomaltose]], the two glucose molecules are joined with an α(1→6) bond. Maltose is the two-unit member of the [[amylose]] [[homologous series]], the key structural motif of [[starch]].
