Dietary Information

High Fructose intake may not be Healthy


Another study recently published links high fructose intake to problems with fats and sugar in the body. Intake of fructose increases the activity of enzymes which produce fats, compounding fatty deposits in the liver, additionally chronic fructose consumption impairs insulin mechanisms in the liver. Moreover, fructose intake potentially can increase cardiovascular disease risk factors: fatty liver disease, dyslipidemia and insulin resistance. 


Fructose makes up 50% of dietary sugars sucrose and high-fructose corn syrup, also agave syrup, honey and maple syrup have a high fructose content. Fructose is also very high in some foods for example dried fruit, dates and raisins for example can be more than 30% fructose by weight. Although fresh fruit has a reputation for being high in fructose, the content is usually below 6% by weight.
