polyglucose

, poly-D-glucose (pŏl″ē-gloo′kōs)
A water-soluble polymer made of linked dextrose subunits. It is used as a peritoneal dialysis solution and as a sweetener in foods.

Carboxymethyl dextran (polyglucose sorbitol carboxymethylether) nanoparticles with improved surface coatings, carrying higher iron payloads and capable of undergoing bolus injection, have also been developed.
The oligosaccharide profile of urine from patients with Pompe disease (n = 11) by the MALDITOF method was characterized by increases in multiple ions such as m/z 885.43, 1089.53, 1293.63, 1497.73, and 1701.83, representing polyhexose (assumed to be polyglucose) from Hexose4 to Hexose8 (Fig.
Whole Foods Market, which worked on the standard for more than two years with chemists and body care experts, allows "milder preservatives" (such as potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate) and "gentle types" of surfactants (like decyl polyglucose and sodium stearoyl lactylate) to be used.
The top layer of the pyramid is "grains," which are essentially "polyglucose." Think of them as "sugars," which, if consumed in excess, are converted to triglycerides and stored as fat.
[beta]-1,3/1,6-glucan, derived from the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is a polyglucose consisting of a linear backbone of [beta]-1,3-linked D-glucopyranosyl units with degrees of branching at the C-6 position (Jorgensen and Robertsen, 1995).
It uses polyglucose as the osmotic agent, is effective at ultrafiltration, and is particularly useful for the long dwell, where there is the greatest likelihood of glucose absorption.

At present, glucose, polyglucose, and amino acids are being used in commercial PDFs.
Polyglucose. The solution currently available in the U.S.
The absorption of polyglucose has been reported to be 14.4% at 6 hours and 28.1% at 12 hours (Mistry, Gokal & Mallick, 1987).
The MIDAS Study revealed that after one month of polyglucose treatment, elevated steady state levels of oligosaccharides were maintained (Mistry et al., 1994; Davies, 1994; Gokal, Mistry, & Peers, 1994).
Iso-osmolar polyglucose solutions achieve peritoneal UF by colloid osmosis allowing net UF during long dwell exchanges due to its slow absorption.
