We get most of our glucose from digesting the sugar and starch in carbohydrates. Foods like rice, pasta, grain, potatoes, fruits, a few vegetables, and processed sweets qualify as carbohydrates. Our digestive system, using bile and enzymes, breaks down the starch and sugar in these foods into glucose. This functional form of energy then gets absorbed through the small intestine into the bloodstream. There, a chemical known as insulin, excreted by the pancreas, meets the glucose. Together, they can enter cells in muscles and the brain, allowing glucose to power activities like lifting a book or remembering a phone

In short starch and sugar get broken down into glucose in our bodies. What do you need it for> A diabetic? They cannot or should not eat that much cake (flour) either, nuts are counted as protein, so if you can find a recipe using nuts only and use sugar substitute, that would be better. they can peel fondant off, so it's only what you use as a glue for the fondant (diabetic jam), that would count
