energy is released when one mole of glucose is broken down. The released energy is used to make a special energy molecule called Adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is where the energy is stored for use later on by the body.Atp is called adenosine triphosphate which is a part of what glucose is broken into. This is the source of energy for your body. ATP is produced by the mitochondria.
