Reducing sugars are sugars where the anomeric carbon has an OH group attached that can reduce other compounds. ... A disaccharide can be a reducing sugar or a non-reducing sugar. Maltose and lactose are reducing sugars, while sucrose is a non-reducing sugar

Dear student 
 For sucrose the bond that connects the glucose to the fructose is the reducing end (free anomeric carbon) and so is not available and will not react in browning reactions based on reducing sugars like maltose in the Maillard reaction but will brown by caramelization.
Good Luck
