Not all sugars are equally bad for us, say scientists from California State University, US. They claim that daily consumption of fructose is unhealthier than the consumption of the same amount of glucose.
In the experiment, researchers observed 32 overweight people. All participants drank beverages sweetened with glucose or fructose during 12 weeks. Then scientists measured the weight of examinees and the condition of their different organs. They found that fructose-sweetened beverages increased fat deposits and had bad effects on the liver function. Scientists remind that the majority of today’s sweet drinks uses fructose or sucrose, which contains fructose and glucose in 1:1 proportion.
