  1. Glucose is a very important carbohydrate also referred to as simple sugars. The tongue cannot distinguish between sugar and glucose since they taste similar. However, body can note the difference between the two.

    Glucose is produced by the body when the carbohydrates are broken down during the process of digestion. It is also found in foods like honey, blueberries, raisins and peaches. On the other hand, sugar is found naturally in some foods and added externally in some cases. Although sugars are also classified as simple sugars, inside the human body they are broken down to glucose.
