Glucose

converted

Glucose (C6H12O6), simple sugar found in certain foods, especially fruits. The chief source of energy for living organisms, it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Excess glucose is converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and muscles; beyond that, it is converted to fat. Glucose in urine may be a symptom of diabetes.
