I need four paragraphs on this topic Glycogen and starch are polysaccharides that can be highly branched, If these polysaccharides are hydrolyzed by intestinal enzymes that work on the tips of these branches, how would the degree or extent of branching of the polysaccharide affect the rate at which you can digest it, mobilizing the sugars within?

    Well think about it logically more branches will equal more tips which will equal faster hydrolysis of the bonds
