How much glucose do we need? Most tissues can burn other energy fuels such as fatty acids but there is nevertheless a requirement for glucose Body needs : ~160 g/day Glucose is used as the primary energy source in brain (~120 g/day) and in red blood cells

Many sources of glucose Dietary intake : Reserve : Variable but generally high (Mostly as sucrose and fructose; 1 can of soda: 30-50 g sugar) 20 g in body fluids 190 g stored as glycogen Make it : gluconeogenesis
