Caption: Lactose molecule rotating. Lactose, or milk sugar, is a disaccharide formed of a glucose molecule linked to a galactose molecule. It is abundant in milk, and all young mammals use it as a source of energy. In many mammals and a large number of humans, though, the enzyme responsible for its breakdown, lactase, is not produced into adulthood, resulting in lactose intolerance. In this animation, carbon atoms are black, oxygen red, and hydrogen grey.
