Glucose (or D-Glucose) is the most abundant monosaccharide, with the molecular formula C6H12O6. It is the primary six-carbon sugar (hexose) found in the juice of most fruits and berries, being the most important source of energy for the metabolism of all living organisms. It is commercialized as colorless crystals, white granular powder, or as syrup, since it is soluble in water. Glucose units are linked through α- and β-linkages to form long-chain polymers, such as starch, cellulose, and glycogen. Organisms can enzymatically process these polymers to convert these macromolecules to glucose units, and subsequently absorb and use them in their metabolism.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Glucose production costs. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2023).
