This is what i read from wikipedia:
"Dialysis tubing is not permeable to glucose."
Is that true? Visking tubing (Dialysis tubing) DOES allow glucose molecules to pass through it right??
So what types of molecules can pass through visking tubing? Can someone tell me which of these can pass through visking tubing and which ones cant?

1. Glucose
2. Maltose
3. Lactose
4. Fructose
5. Galactose
6. Sucrose
7. Starch


Please help thanks LOADS!!!!!!!!
