One medium banana contains (from the USDA Nutrient Database):
Total sugars: 14.4 g
Sucrose 2.82 g (which yields about 1.4 g glucose in the body and about 1.4 g fructose)
Glucose (dextrose) 5.88 g
Fructose 5.72 g
So roughly speaking sugars from bananas are about 40% fructose directly as fructose, about 41% glucose directly as glucose, and about 19% sucrose, which hydrolyzes in the body to equal amounts of glucose and fructose.
Contrary to common belief, they’re not mostly or entirely fructose. But then again neither are they low in it. [/quote]
cool thanks Bill…I would have assumed it was a dominant fructose food. lol Thanks for the info…
to the OP…get your shake in your system faster than 20 mins after your workout. Some say it doesn’t matter, but I’m a firm believer in getting it in ASAP. My shake is in my gut before I even leave the gym.
my .02 once again.
