If the hydroxyl group on the anomeric carbon of a cyclized sugar is not linked to another compound by a glycosidic bond, the ring can open. The sugar can act as a reducing agent, and is termed a reducing sugar. Such sugars can react with chro- mogenic agents (for example, Benedict’s reagent or Fehling’s solution) causing the reagent to be reduced and colored, with the aldehyde group of the acyclic sugar becoming oxidized.
