This body of research indicates that carbohydrate intake, in the form of the glucose polymer
maltodextrin and/or the sugars glucose and sucrose, improves indicators of performance in team sports such as basketball[sup.

One glucose polymer
, cellulose, is good for making cotton clothes; another one, starch, feeds us in the form of rice, pasta or potatoes.
The second ingredient after water in NPS is "corn syrup solids," which is a glucose polymer
made by the controlled depolymerization of corn starch.
Starch is a repeating glucose polymer
, containing straight amylose chains resistant to water, and high-molecular-weight, branched amylopectin chains.
Post-exercise ingestion of a unique, high molecular weight glucose polymer
solution improves performance during a subsequent bout of cycling exercise.
The starch molecules are glucose polymers
classified into two categories: amylose, a mainly linear polymer composed of about 300 to 5000 glucose units; and amylopectin, a highly-branched glucose polymer
several hundred times the size of amylose.
The glucose polymer
icodextrin has become widely used in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) (1).
By conventional technologies, ethanol is produced from only the cellulose, which is a glucose polymer
Starch is a mixture of the glucose polymers
amylose and amylopectin.
Contributors from the Southwest University of Science and Technology in China study the degradation of corn starch in NaOH/urea, the synthesis of Konjac glucomannan, the thermal stability of glucose polymers
, and the effect of alkali on the compressive strength of metakaolin.
The topics include new catalytic systems for vegetable oil trans-esterification-based on tin compounds, emerging technologies in dry-grind ethanol production, the biocatalysis-based development of oligo-saccharides in Japan, and the bio-engineering and application of glucose polymers
