How do Plants use the Glucose

  • For respiration - They manufacture glucose in their leaves, and they then use some of it for respiration. This releases energy which enables them to convert the rest of the glucose into various other useful substances which they can use to build new cells and grow. To produce some of these substances, they also need to gather a few minerals from the soil.
  • Making fruits - Glucose, along with another sugar called fructose, is turned into sucrose for storing in fruits.Fruits deliberately taste nice so animals will eat them and spread seeds around.
