So, what is glukose?

Glucose, also known as dextrose, is a simple sugar that serves as a primary source of energy for the human body. It is a naturally occurring carbohydrate that is found in many fruits and vegetables, but can also be produced commercially from cornstarch through a process called hydrolysis. Glucose is commonly used as an ingredient in many food products, including candies, baked goods, and sports drinks, due to its sweet taste and ability to provide quick energy. It is also used in the pharmaceutical industry to manufacture medicines, as well as in the production of paper and textiles. Glucose is an essential ingredient that is widely used in the food and beverage industry.
