Hi there, I have a quick question which I'm really stumped on.

1. When combined with Lugol's solution (iodine), does glucose and sucrose contain starch?

I think glucose has starch but not sucrose. Is this right?

It is extremely important in Nature as one of the main energy sources for living organisms, both in plants and animals.
