Meat is NOT a good dietary source of glycogen. Why?
A) Glycogen is resistant to intestinal enzymes and cannot be broken down by the human digestive tract.
B) Most of the glycogen found in meat is broken down when the animal is slaughtered.
C) The highly branched structure of glycogen is difficult for human digestive enzymes to break apart.
D) Glycogen is a protein and will be broken down by the human digestive tract before it is absorbed in the small intestine.
