|List of Ingredients|
also known as fruit sugar, is a monosaccharide that occurs with glucose in
sweet fruits and fruit juices.
Fructose is generally refined from corn
starch. It is claimed to be anywhere from 15 to 80% sweeter than sucrose,
and tastes particularly sweet when cold or in solution.
It is believed to
be absorbed into the gastro-intestinal tract more slowly than glucose, and
does not require insulin for entry into the liver. These features make it
appealing to diabetics, but the advantages are somewhat offset by its
higher tendency to be converted to fat rather than glycogen, thereby
elevating blood triglyceride levels.
