Because they are made of two simple sugars, Sucrose and maltose are disaccharides. Sucrose is converted into glucose and another common sugar, fructose, by a distillate, and maltose is broken down into two glucose molecules. The sugars sucrose and maltose, as well as other sugar molecules produced from these sugar molecules are difficult to break down by people with congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency. After ingestion of sucrose or maltose, an affected child would usually experience stomach cramps, bloating, excess gas production, and diarrhea. As they get older, most affected children are able to tolerate sucrose and maltose.
