WHAT IS FRUCTOSE?
BULK POWDERS™ Fructose Powder is a 100% pure source of this fast absorbing carbohydrate, containing no additives or fillers whatsoever.
Fructose is a naturally occurring simple sugar known as a monosaccharide. It has a low Glycemic Index score of 19, therefore is digested over a longer period of time and has a lesser impact on blood sugar levels compared to other carbohydrate sources such as Maltodextrin.
Fructose Powder is a particularly popular carbohydrate source with sports nutrition users. For example, it is frequently found in isotonic energy drinks due to its benefits in relation to replenishing liver glycogen.
Fructose Powder has the benefit of being able to pass through the intestines using an alternative pathway to Glucose, which goes straight into the bloodstream. The body can only consume so much carbohydrate through the Glucose absorption pathway, so the alternative pathway via which Fructose is utilised provides additional carbohydrate uptake over and above what is usually possible. To this extent, Fructose is actually best utilised in conjunction with other carbohydrate sources, as opposed to in place of. A popular choice is adding Fructose to something like Dextrose & Maltodextrin 50:50.
Fructose is naturally occurring in a number of foods; such as honey, fruit, vegetables and berries.
