What would be the point and purpose?  Glucose is a fermentable sugar and yeast will quickly consume it.

I just thought like in icecream etc...

it might give the bread some of his unic elasticity.

anyway, i'll try and report.

I have never heard of any one mixing glucose into bread...in any amount. 

Of course there are countless events that take place in the world that I am unaware of and this could be one of them.
