Fructose or so-called fruit sugar is a sweet taste monosaccharide (carbohydrate) containing six carbon atoms, but unlike glucose with the same general formula, there is a keto group located at a second carbon atom, i. E. it is ketohexose. It is contained in sweet fruits, vegetables and honey. That's where her name comes from. The human body breaks down only in the liver.
The glycemic index (GI) is a digital scale that shows how quickly and how high a particular food can increase our blood glucose (blood sugar). Low GI foods tend to stimulate more moderate blood sugar, and high GI foods cause it to rise sharply. Fructose has a low glycemic index and results in a moderate release of insulin in the bloodstream from glucose and sucrose.
Fructose is probably the sweetest of all nutritional sweeteners. Fruit sugar sweetness varies from 1.17 to 1.75 times that of regular white sugar, depending on the food or drink in which it is used.
The interaction of fructose with other sweeteners or starch results in synergy that increases the sweetness and viscosity of foods and beverages.
Fructose maintains the integrity of frozen fruits by controlling water and preventing the formation of icy crystals, which can break the fragile fruit tissue.
Fruit sugar helps maintain healthy weight. Because the taste is sweeter than sugar but with fewer calories, substitution of white sugar with fructose in various foods and beverages is recommended for people who want to get rid of a few extra pounds.
Fructose is a great sweetener in the culinary industry. It can be used as a substitute for white sugar, which does not change the sweetness and texture of the foods or beverages. Fruit sugar makes the glaze of dairy products more creamy and more fresh.
