The Chemistry and Sources of Fructose and Their Effect on its Utility and Health Implications
AbstractFructose is a significant component in natural foods and has become one of the most prevalent sweeteners added in the manufacture of food. Fructose is also used as a pharmaceutical excipient and derivatives of fructose are exploited as renewable chemical building blocks. Herein we discuss the chemistry and sources of this monosaccharide and how these factors affect the utility and health implications of fructose.
