    Table sugar is not a good choice for glycogen replinishment, no.

    Honey is superior.

    i think it could go somthing like this

    1(Glucose) is found in some fruits, onions, vegetables, and liquid or tablet form glucose is the bodies first energy supply.

    2 dextrose..I reason I put this second to glucose is that it is required by the body to be broken down before use glucose is not..

    3 fructose

    4 Galactose is the sugar found in milk.
