Sugar, starch, sucrose, lactose, etc are all included in carbohydrates but the difference arises in their size and classification. Sugar is a carbohydrate that includes sucrose, fructose, lactose. Starch is a polysaccharide i.e long sugar molecule chains while sucrose is disaccharide i.e formed by two sugars bonded together.
