Natural sugar substitute
Perfect for cooking and baking
Fructose is a simple carbohydrate. Found in its natural form in fruits, some vegetables, honey it plays a role in the structural makeup of saccharine (cane sugar, sucrose), while inulin also consists of fructose units (although due to its special chemical bonds it has a different effect than other compounds containing fructose).
As a colorless, crystalline material it has an external resemblance to granulated sugar. It is easily dissolved in water. It is easy and simple to use with a wide range of applications.
Fructose is sweeter than cane sugar, which is why smaller amounts are sufficient. Fructose raises blood sugar levels at a slower rate and its absorption requires no insulin.
It contains the same amount of calories as cane sugar and sucrose. It can boost blood fat and uric acid levels, exacerbating weight gain and the propensity to kidney stones. Its consumption isn’t recommended for those with diabetes as it increases the chance of arteriosclerosis, which diabetes patients are more prone to. In amounts over approx. 50 g, it can cause digestive problems (diarrhea, bloating).
Fructose used in its natural form (e.g. in fruits) has no such negative effects and small amounts of fructose can be used for sweetening purposes.
Fructose can be used as a sweetener in pastries and desserts. Make sure to use it in smaller amounts than granulated sugar and avoid consuming larger amounts.
Other sweeteners are more advantageous for sweetening liquids.
