- 100% pure crystalline fructose
- Excellent sugar substitute
- Naturally sweet
Fructose, known as the fruit sugar is deemed to be a monosaccharide equal to glucose, but with a different structure, as it has just 6 atoms of carbon and energy power of 4 kilocalories per gram. Fructose can be found in fruits, in some types of honey, vegetables and other natural sources.
Fructose by Now Foods consists of 100% crystalline fructose, produced from maize and should not be confused with high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which is made with a series of sweeteners created with variable quantities of glucose and fructose. Fructose sweetens more than glucose, and therefore less quantity is needed, and consequently fewer calories are consumed, given that it has the same calorific value as glucose, 400 kcal for every 100 grams.
