Glucose is a crystalline white powder which is very soluble in water. It is a carbohydrate and a monosaccharide sugar. The chemical formula for glucose is C6H12O6

The structural formula of glucose is

 

 

 

A glucose molecule, C6H12O6 A 3D rotating glucose molecule

Glucose sugar is used as fuel by our bodies and is converted into energy through the process of cellular respiration.

Glucose and oxygen ==> Carbon dioxide and water and energy

C6H12O6 + 6O2 ==> 6CO2 + 6H2O + energy
