Crystalline, granulated fruit sugar.
USES: Use in drinks, for baking and over cereals. Sprinkle a little over fruit and fruit salad. Common refined table sugar enters the bloodstream rapidly via the digestive tract and causes unnatural surges in the blood sugar level. These surges impose a heavy burden on the pancreas (contributing to diabetes) and the adrenal glands (contributing to hypoglycaemia). Because Fructose releases slowly into the bloodstream, it does not burden the pancreas and the adrenal glands the way normal sugar does. Fructose has a glycaemic index of 23, glucose 100 and honey 87. Though Fructose is a superior sweetener, it should nevertheless be used in moderation.
