saccharide

 [sak´ah-rīd]
one of a series of carbohydrates, including the sugars; they are divided into monosaccharides, disaccharides, trisaccharides, and polysaccharides according to the number of saccharide groups composing them.

sac·cha·ride

(sak'ă-rīd),
Any substance that is either a simple sugar (aldose or ketose) or a compound of such substances in glycosidic linkage to each other. Saccharides are classified as mono-, di-, tri-, and polysaccharides according to the number of monosaccharide groups composing them. See: carbohydrates.
