Simple sugars absorbed through the skin of the mouth?

I was curious if this was possible because when i eat lots of sugar it seems the rush is instantaneous, so I was wondering if any body had any scientific proof of this or any evidence of this being true or if you just want to share your opinions.

Re: Simple sugars absorbed through the skin of the mouth?

The first part of the digestive process does actually start in your mouth with the enzyme amylase which is located in the saliva. This enzyme breaks apart long carbohydrate molecules, this is why when you are really hungry you crave carbohydrates, because they are broken down first and therefore gives your body instant energy (but not good constant longlasting energy) This is why you shouldnt let yourself get really hungry because you will be more likely to choose the sugar!
