Water dissolves carbohydrates. Sugars are a general term for all carbs. Because they include such a large number of hydroxyl groups, sugars are soluble in water.

A hydroxyl group can establish a hydrogen bond, which raises a compound’s water solubility factor and makes carbohydrates more water soluble. Carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen are the three distinct components that make up the chemical complex known as a carbohydrate. Saccharides, or sugars, are another name for carbohydrates. When two monosaccharides bind together to create a disaccharide, or double sugar, they are both single sugars.
