Lactose or milk sugar is a complex sugar (carbohydrate) that may also be called diholoside. Lactose is constituted by a disaccharide formed by the reunion of two monosaccharides: glucose and galactose. It is a pure, non-toxic sugar that is soluble and has a low sweetening power: 0.16 for lactose compared to 1 for saccharose.
Edible lactose undergoes a better crystallisation than dextrose or sucrose. When it is mixed with other sugars, for instance dextrose, it modifies their crystallisation properties. Lactose is slightly soluble in water and has a low sweetening power. Edible lactose goes from white to yellowish-white in colour.
