Glycoside is a molecule

    A glycoside is a molecule where two (or more) molecules of sugar are bonded through either the keytone or aldhyde group and the anomeric carbon via an oxygen or sulphur atom. - Is this correct?

    If so, does that mean that glycosides are non-reducing sugars because they are bonded through the anomeric carbon, which means the anomeric carbon cannot reduce other molecules?
