Browsing: Fructose

Fructose is the most common type of simple carbohydrate in nature. It is present in berries, fruits and fruit plants. Most fructose is found in oranges, bananas, apples and peaches. In the composition of honey, it is about 80%, in the composition of sugar – about 50%.

Sugar is a key ingredient in sugary sodas and juices (after water). In the case of cola, we are talking about 20-25 g of sugar per 250 ml – which is equivalent to 5 teaspoons. At the same time, grape and apple juices are the leaders – they contain about 6-8 tablespoons of fast carbohydrates per glass.

Glucose is a monosaccharide that is part of food (primarily sweets and fruits), as well as obtained from carbohydrate foods during digestion. The hormone insulin is needed to absorb glucose – if not enough, blood sugar levels can rise dangerously.
