disaccharide

One of the class of common sugars, including milk sugar (lactose) and cane sugar (sucrose), that can be broken down by hydrolysis, under the action of enzymes, to yield two monosaccharides.

The suggested limits on intake apply to all monosaccharides (such as glucose, fructose) and disaccharides (such as sucrose or table sugar) that are added to food by the manufacturer, the cook or the consumer, as well as sugars that are naturally present in honey, syrups, fruit juices and fruit concentrates.
Fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols (FODMAPs) such as apples, beans, white bread, and milk are poorly absorbed in the small intestine, which can trigger bouts of gas from colonic bacterial fermentation and diarrhea because of osmotic water transfer into the lumen of the colon.
FODMAP is the acronym for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols--all sugars that may not be digested or absorbed well by the body, and are then fermented by bacteria in the intestinal tract.
