I have confusion about carbohydrates, so in a polysaccharide, the monosaccharides are joined together by a glycosidic bond. this I understand, but I have seen reference to hydrogen bonds in carbohydrates well. how is a hydrogen bond involved with carbohydrates? are polysaccharide chains held together by hydrogen bonds because in my research this seems to be the easiest explaination.

thank you

the polysaccharide cellulose has hydrogen bonds which allow microfibrils to form to provide strength in the cell but I all do have hydrogen bonds but not 100% sure
