Maltose is a disaccharide composed of two glucose molecules. Maltose is created when seeds start to germinate, hence its name is related to malt used in brewing alcohol. However, most alcoholic drinks do not contain maltose.
Maltose is also created when glucose is caramelized and so may be found in toasted (browned) foods such as breads, crackers, and bagels. Maltose is also added to a wide variety foods.
Foods high in maltose include bread products, candies, cereal bars, energy bars, bagels, pies, processed cereals, crackers, sweet potatoes, honey, and pizza. For more, see the extended list of foods rich in maltose. All the foods listed are intended to be limited or avoided.
