Sugar comes in a variety of molecular shapes. Only the simplest, 
glucose, can be absorbed directly through mucus membrane, the rest 
must go through at least minimal digetion to break down the molecule 
to glucose. Glucose gel is probably the fastest with glucose tabs 
VERY close behind -- has to mix with some fluid, but that doesn't 
take long. Glucose gel or a chewed glucose tablet begins absorption 
immediately as it comes into contact with the gums and cheeks as well 
as other tissue inside the body as you swallow, etc...
