Glycogen is a polysaccharide-type of carbohydrate. In animals, carbohydrates are stored as glycogen.
But starch is a carbohydrate which consists of two components –amylase (15 -20 %) and amylopectin (80 – 85%).
However, glycogen is also like amylopectin but branching will take place after every 5 to 6 glucose unit. Also, glycogen is highly branched.
