Fructose - Fructose is naturally occurring and also present in many fruits and vegetables. In fact, many refer to it as fruit sugar. In comparison to crystalline table sugar, fructose is highly fermentable and has a much lower glycemic rating than other simple sugars. This makes it suitable for many diabetics because unlike table sugar, it won’t trigger a large insulin spike. And despite its lower GI rating, fructose is approximately 50% sweeter than table sugar.
