Fructose: friend or foe?

Luther | | May 12, 2010 06:49 AM

This thread is inspired by the "HFCS: Friend or foe" thread (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/694361). Hopefully it can serve as a place to share information about the known and unknown effects of fructose consumption on human health.

Is there a safe or even beneficial quantity of fructose that we should be eating? How much is too much? Is there a significant difference between eating sucrose and eating 1:1 glucose:fructose? What would happen if we replaced all sucrose and HFCS with glucose?
