At the same time, strictly speaking, carbohydrate is not an essential dietary component; that is, you can survive without eating it any of it at all (an explanation of essential vs. inessential nutrients can be found in A Primer on Nutrition Part 1).
Fix the bold.

How many carbohydrates should be consumed in the human diet is a topic of endless debate controversy
Get rid of one of the bold.

One that does come up on fitness forums (due to its use in many sports products) is dextrose which is simply d-glucose.

Sucrose = Glucose + Sucrose?

"Pure glucose is sickeningly sweet (as anyone whos taken an oral glucose tolerance test can attest to) but sucrose is not nearly as sweet relatively speaking."

Sucrose is sweeter than glucose. It's just as well that OGTTs don't use sucrose. UK OGTTs use 70g of glucose with some citric acid added to "improve" the flavour.

I don't buy that chart for a second, then. I've done OGTT and straight sucrose and only one makes me want to throw up.
