According to Understanding Nutrition (Whitney & Rolfes, 2005), the recommended daily allowance of carbohydrate is 130 grams.  It is recommended that carbohydrates provide about half (45 to 65 percent) of a person's caloric intake.

There does not appear to be a recommended daily allowance for glucose, though there are recommendations made for intake of sugar.  It is recommended that added sugars should not make up more than 25 percent of an individual's total daily caloric intake.

You can find much more information on this topic in Understanding Nutrition, the textbook for Biology 1322.  COM Library has a reserve copy of this textbook available for in-library use.
