Generally I have thought fructose would be healthier than refined sugar (glucose). But then I came across this study online about fructose and glucose:
Study Shows More Insulin Resistance With Fructose-Sweetened Beverages
Table sugar has 50/50 fructose/glucose
high-fructose corn syrup is 55/45
and squeezed juice has mainly fructose.
My orange juice has 9.6g fructose /100g, and my Coca cola has 10.6g glucose / 100g.
"…most of the added fat in the fructose group occurred in the belly, while most of the fat gained by the glucose group was subcutaneous (under the skin).
Belly fat, but not subcutaneous fat, has been linked to an increased risk for heart disease and diabetes."
Could one debate ,insulin-resistance wise, it is worse to drink this orange juice than Cocacola? (not taking account any vitamins or fibers, just sugar content)
