Muscle Glycogen vs Liver Glycogen. What is the difference between muscle and liver glycogen?

Muscle glycogen is stored differently than liver glycogen. Sugars from starches like a white potato are stored in the muscles while fructose from fruit and high fructose corn syrup is stored in the liver.

The body can store about 400 to 500 grams of muscle glycogen depending on how big you are and about 50 to 100 grams of liver glycogen.
