Question

can it be glycerol because-
Chylomicrons and VLDL are broken down by endothelial LPL in adipose tissue capillaries releasing free fatty acids which are take up by adipose tissue.
glucose that enters the adipose tissue via GLUT 4 is broken down to glycerol-3-po4 and glycerol-3-po4 + Fatty acids combine to give triglycerides in adipose tissue for storage.
