Other carbohydrates are composed of monosaccharide units, and break down under hydrolysis.

Carbohydrate intolerance is the inability of the small intestine to completely process the nutrient carbohydrate (a classification that includes sugars and starches) into a source of energy for the body.
Carbohydrates are the primary source of energy and, along with fats and proteins, one of the three major nutrients in the human diet.
Carbohydrates are classified according to their structure, based on the number of basic sugar, or saccharide, units they contain.

Carbohydrates are classified by their number of sugar units: monosaccharides (such as glucose and fructose), disaccharides (such as sucrose and lactose), oligosaccharides, and polysaccharides (such as starch, glycogen, and cellulose).
Carbohydrates require less water to digest than proteins or fats and are the most common source of energy.
