Another study (with weight training) demonstrated, for example, that individuals consuming a carbohydrate beverage (10% glucose polymer
) performed more series and repetitions compared to those who ingested a placebo solution (Bacurau, 2001).
It has been suggested that because of the lower osmolalities, glucose polymer
solutions (such as maltodextrin) are preferable to isocaloric glucose solutions as a source of ingested CHO before and during exercise (16).
Seidman et al  have observed similar results with glucose polymer
and water which shows increased blood glucose with glucose polymer
and increased FFA with water.

One glucose polymer
, cellulose, is good for making cotton clothes; another one, starch, feeds us in the form of rice, pasta or potatoes.
Cellulose, a glucose polymer
, produces considerable char, water, carbon dioxide, and many polar organic compounds when pyrolyzed.
Polydextrose is a glucose polymer
consisting of randomly cross-linked glucose units with some sorbitol end-groups.
The second ingredient after water in NPS is "corn syrup solids," which is a glucose polymer
made by the controlled depolymerization of corn starch.
Oxidation rates for ingested carbohydrate of up to 1.5 g per minute can be expected with the ingestion of around 72 g glucose polymer
(maltodextrin) and 36 g fructose per hour (Wallis et al., 2005).
Its starch consists of two kinds of glucose polymer
: amylose and amylopectin.
Although the percentage of total glucose polymer
absorbed from the peritoneal cavity is lower than that of comparable glucose solutions, the total amount of carbohydrates, absorbed can be greater providing a higher caloric load (Mistry, Gokal, & Mallick, 1986).
Starch is a repeating glucose polymer
, containing straight amylose chains resistant to water, and high-molecular-weight, branched amylopectin chains.
